Bitterly cold at Chev. this morning : 3 degrees in Mittagong felt like -3 on the oval! The whole time I wore gloves, jumper, beanie and track pants. First repeat felt not so good and I thought I was in for a day when VP could wipe me out! However, I ran easy, things improved and I stayed ahead for last 2 repeats.
10-20 min warm-up......I did 1.7k
3 x 1600m in 12:36 (based on 40min 5k time)
10 min cool-down......didn't need to cool down but did usual stretches.
3 x 1600m : 12:38; 12:14; 11:50
Lanes were in the process of being marked ahead of the carnival next week. I ran inside the boundary fence. Kids came and went while I plodded on!
