Cycle 2 - Day 3

5 X 2000m R90s (7.50 / 3.55km) T

Hi there The 'Ed'

How are you doing ?
I hope you've had a good week.

I'm working my way through another cycle of the sub 40. As advised I haven't changed pace times based on the latest 4k time trial.

Last night I completed the 5 x 2000 ®90s.

I felt strong and optimistic. I was better with pace but I'm still pretty bad i think. I also made a mistake by picking a section of the route where I had to run 1km and then turn around and then run the other 1km to make the 2km interval (this was in order to avoid the hilly part of the route). The slowing and turning at the end of each 1km has interfered with the average pace (yes I know i didnt think). And for this reason I dont feel the figures are as accurate as they should be (since you only have to slow for a second to below your target pace and then that pace will be calculated into the average).

I have figures attached for you. I apologise, as Im still not helping myself by making mistakes with an ideal route. I know I said that i would go to the track but it was not possible yesterday morning and so I had to run the same place as before. The same location and path as before but avoiding the hills.

Here's a good thing though. I didnt feel totally battered at the end and i didnt have the lactic build up during the run. I ran home tired but still able. it did end up being a long run though for me. I made an effort to run the last 2km faster and each 2km towards the end I would speed up for the last 100-200m. Heart Rate averaged between 160-170 on each work 2km interval.

I was thinking perhaps I could do the session again instead of the 1km session ?
Any advise most welcome
Alright speak soon
