nice philosophising Ric. In 4 years with Moraghan though, except for say 6miles MP, the sessions are continually fresh, and never get dull.
Today for instance was 7x800 at 5k pace off 90sec.
Probably the first time I can remember that the rep total distance is higher than the distance of the rep pace (ie 3 1/2miles ish at 3.1mile pace)
One of those classic track sessions where it's fairly windy down the back straight, and not at all down the other side. Rep 3 i think was the windiest, which makes sense looking on the reps.
As per Old style sessions I fitted a pit stop in after rep 5!
But generally quite nice.
For stat freaks, 2.38 average, which is 5.18 miling pace, which sneaks into my 5k training zone (5.13-5.18).
Would probably need very still conditions on that track to get that down to the top end of the zone.
Either way, 5.26 for a 16.53 is my quickest actual 5k race, so looks promising.
Northern chaps...all looking good indeed. very promising times ahead for you all.
