The weather hasn’t been great so all the sessions this week were on the treadmill. The speed for the 10km threshold runs is starting to come down and it won’t be long before I’m back in pre-Xmas form (read close to PB shape). The interval session on Friday was a repeat of last week (3:00/km pace at 2% incline). It felt a lot more comfortable this week and HR was about 4 beats lower throughout the session. Again a good sign that things are on the up.
I decided to give up the booze to try and get the weight down a bit. That lasted 11 days and I then had a few cans over the weekend. I have to say I didn’t feel one bit better for the break. In fact I was miserable!
Good win for Spurs on Sunday and still in the title race (just!). And how good was the Masters!
