At Chevalier College around mid-day. Nice cool day, no sun, good breeze. I think this was a very good training session!
Drills and Strides.
8 x 400m repeats @ 5:46 to 5:43 per km.
Results: 2:03.42; 2:05.80; 2:05.90; 2:07.86; 2:04.40; 1:59.50; 1:57.80; 1:56.85.
So, right around 5m/k pace.
Recovery between each repeat : 100m walk, 300m jog to the start & off again!
I had Virtual Partner programmed for 5:46per km and I finished each repeat way ahead of him every time! I left him behind by anything up to 65m maximum! I was determined that the infamous VP was beaten every time so I ran as hard as I could and left poor old VP struggling in my wake!
...this is VP showing how he felt seeing me take off!
I enjoyed these 400m repeats though it was hard work and lots of puffing & grunting, but I felt fine after finishing and now.....a day off tomorrow; I told Ewen I don't know that I deserve a rest day, but I'll take it anyhow and be rested for Friday's tempo run.
