My first track session of the year on Tuesday. I eased in with some 400's off a 60 second recovery. Perfect conditions and averaged 66.2 for the set which wasn't too shabby. The downside was that my legs were in bits for the next few days. Hence only a short threshold run on Thursday. Anyway good to do some speed stuff and I'll be doing a few more sessions like this over the next few weeks.

On Sunday I ran in Breaffy. I took it out fairly quick and was never challenged. I went through 5km in 16 minutes and then hit the tough part of the course and had nothing. Struggled home and was disappointed with my time but I think it was one of those days were all times were a bit off. Maybe it was the heat as it must have been close to 18 degrees. Yes you read that correctly. I thought I was in 32 shape but that will have to wait for another day. An enjoyable day nonetheless and I feel like I'm heading in the right direction.
