A repeat session of the last couple of weeks. Warm-up (pitches), then some strides on the track, then the mile primer which I ran quite hard (4:52). Then a 3 minute break before the 12 x 400's.
I do dread this session. The track was damp and greasy and there was a bit of breeze to contend with on the top bend. Just get it over with...
Times were fairly consistent and I was getting the heart rate much higher today and at the same time I felt a little more in control. Average time was 66.2 and I'll take that given it was a little slippery.
Warm-down around the pitches and job done. I think pushing the initial mile helps spike the HR higher during the 400's. I'll use that strategy again. All up 13.4kms for the day.
