Sorry for the lack of updates... it's been a crazy few weeks and unfortunately I haven't had a session I was proud enough about to want to post
I accepted a work secondement to Paris for 4 months (starting a couple of weeks ago). It's an awesome opportunity, but has put a bit of a strain on my training/racing plan for the summer.
Have been keeping my mileage up and sticking as best I can to the programme. I have also joined a good triathlon club. Here's my splits from last running cycle:
2k's (17-May, flat road, 80kg)
(I tried to hit the 3:20's and completely blew after the first 2).
1k's (23-May, track, 79kg)
(tried to hit the 3:10's and again blew up after first few)
5k tempo (26-May, hilly, 80kg)
- unfortunately I was feeling terrible that morning... I decided to jog it, until at about 3k I realised I could actually still win - so I managed to pick up the pace at the end!.
I was in the US last weekend so missed my Race day... did a jet-lagged tempo 15k instead. A shame because I felt good on my Fartlek session (was cruising 3:15 pace for the 1min intervals).
Anyway, due to run my 2k's on Thursday. Dreading the session a little bit. I'm not sure 3:20's are realistic with 90s rest, what do you reckon I should aim for?
