Some speedwork on the treadmill on Thursday - basically running 3:00/km pace on a 2% incline. Tough but manageable and reaching top of threshold and dipping up into tempo zone.

Perfect conditions for the Turkey Trot. I took it out hard and ran the first km in 3:02. Then kept pushing and kept the pace all sub 3:10/km for the rest of the race. Felt strong and a bit disappointed to see the finish line as I could have held that pace a little longer. A gem of a race and really enjoyed it and good to see a few PB's from clients who have been in for a test.
