Easy call

The legs still felt far from right today so it was an easy decision to make in not running the last race in the 5km series out at Tuam. Instead (madness) I decided to run a track session and I felt awful before, during and after...

A 2.6km warm-up, then the session was 4 x 400, 3 x 1600, 4 x 400. The recovery was 60 seconds between the 400s, 75 seconds between the miles, with 2 minutes between sets. Times were as follows:


Thanks to Owen and Gary for keeping the pace honest. I was wearing my racing flats but it felt like I had lead balloons tied around my ankles. Plus the breathing was way too heavy. I suppose the times aren't too bad considering - thankfully the conditions were good which helped.

I finished up with a 2.4km warm-down to give me 13kms for the day.

Meanwhile out at Tuam there were some great times posted - 4 people well inside 16 minutes! A great run by one of my training buddies smashing 16 minutes for the first time with a fine PB of 15:51. Much more to come I reckon!
