Day 6: 30:00 - 6.50km
Day 7: 45:00 - 10.00km (I didn't even look at my watch for either of these, so surprising they came out so even)
Day 8: 6 x 1000m @ 3:40 60 rest
1. 3:33 (wasn't sure of correct pace)
This was honestly the hardest workout I have ever had in my life. The first 1 was ok, 2 was hard, 3 was excruciating, 4 was numb, 5 I couldn't breathe, after 60 seconds I was still gasping for breath like a fish out of water, and 6 my legs felt like rubber. Phew!
It was incredibly humid today, and it was my first day back to work after a ten day holiday, which probably increased the difficulty. However, the truth is that my leg speed is weak. I can run at 3:50 pretty easily, but 3:40 hurts!
