Out to the track. Similar to the previous couple of weeks I ran a lap of the block and then 3 laps of the track to give me a 5.1km warm-up. The session today was 800's to be run at a quicker pace than your target 10km. The main group was doing 8 but I upsized to 10 and the recovery was a 200m jog. I wanted to keep this under 60 seconds which I just about managed. Times were as follows:
Happy with that as I felt strong throughout and the breathing was under control but again no killer speed. If I had to drop in say a 2:25 then I'd have no chance. But for the half this session shows I'm in decent nick.
I finished up with a 3.9km warm-down and that's a total of 18.8km for the day.
Then darts. We were playing the best team in the league (away) packed full of county players. We lost 6-3 and I lost both my singles and pairs game 2-1. Close but no cigar. I need to get on the practice board a bit more often...
