10-20 min warm-up
5 x 1km @ 6:26m/k
10 min cool-down
(1) 6:26; (2) 6:27; (3) 6:29; (4) 6:29; (5) 6:46
This session felt absolutely dreadfully hard!
Excuses : the heat - terrible coming off the bitumen and cement; breeze cut off by surrounding buildings and trees; legs lactic for last two repeats - this is so painful! -.....finished ready to collapse; sweat dripping to the ground!
I sat in the shade for quite some time trying to get my breath and cool down before driving the short distance home. Not sure what I achieved at this workout. At least I finished it and didn't think I would after just the first two repeats. No cool-down jog; a few stretches and that was it. Can't remember feeling so drained.
