Fast Fartlek

Did a great run tonight. I did the Ursvik 10k as follows: Race pace for all the hills and then race pace for the last 2,8km. Result? 42:31; the fastest time all year. It by no means shows that I am in race shape, but it certainly suggests that race form will come.

The graph above shows that the effort varied; usually I run with a flat or sloping HR. This was mountainous – never steady at all. Let’s seeif I can hold race pace for 40-or-so minutes on Wednesday.To be honest, I don’t think i’m ready for that yet!
