40 minute threshold

Today was a test to see if it was easier to run a threshold run on tired legs. I should clarify, being tired it should be a little easier to get into the threshold zone...

A 2.2km warm-up, then a few strides and straight into it. I had the benefit of the wind for the outward section and was running sub 3:20/km pace. Then turned and it was a lot tougher. Overall I managed 12km in 40:48 (average 3:24/km).

A 2.2kms warm-down to give me 16.4kms for the day. Was it easier to get into the zone? Maybe a little. Good running that on tired legs.
