some big paces there. 3min 1km! I've always wondered how track sessions work with whole squads of you on there at the same time. i suppose I'm "spoilt" in always having one to myself. Although the flip is that you have no competition and have to be completely self motivated.
today was 2x2miles (well, 3200m as on a track) HMP off 90secs, followed by 6x200 "fast relaxed" again off 90sec
I set 1.26 as the target, as that's 5.46 HMP.
Felt fairly decent, especially compared to the 1.19 lapping Tuesday, although 1.21 for the first lap set things off way too fast.
using the 100ths like an absolute anorak, rep 1 was 85.76 a lap, and rep 2 was 85.88.
Applying the Phil Jones 2secs per 9metres to make up the full mile factor, then overall average paces were 5.45 miling. Which is top of the zone, and above pb pace.
so that's ok then.
200s as "fast relaxed" came out 5x34 and 1x35.
Bearing in mind doing 8x200 as a standalone 1500 sesh and they averaged 33 on a pavement, i should probably do my next pure 200s set on the track!
felt a little breathy, wasn't sure if this is just how this intensity normally feels, or whether it's this side tightness i have! Will do my best to stretch it out before whatever Tuesday's hard session is!
