I’m now physically and mentally tired, nevertheless I’m pretty pleased. I did a nice run today that shows my fitness is on the way up. I did a 10 minute warm-up on the way to the track, there I did:
- 4 x (1200 w/ 400 very easy recovery)
- 1600 at AeT HR
All 1200s were under 4:40 and I even considered doing another. Common sense, rather than tiredness was the factor in persuading myself to stop. The 1600 was at 4:44/km average pace (8:03/mile). The idea is that this last part of the workout might be a predictor og my Ironman pace – Purely theoretical, but unless I track it, I’ll never know.
