Total for week 95.7km

The kids off school this week so lots of treadmill running. I’m getting good at it!! New PB on Tuesday for my bog standard threshold run and I didn’t even hit top of zone so must be getting fit. Some good sessions on Thursday – running intervals at 3:00/km pace on 2% incline off a short 60 second recovery. Plus a good session on Saturday where I was upping the pace throughout the session with the last few efforts up above threshold.  A good long run with the lads to finish off the week.

No niggles at the moment and the body is holding up well. I’m planning a couple of track sessions in the next 2 weeks and that will be my final prep for the 10,000m….
