My 6K was pretty uneventful, as my legs felt recovered from yesterday's track workout and did just fine. I finished it in 38:45 for 6:27/km with ave HR 145. Then I had some 200s to do at 85% effort. Well, I'm not sure it was really 85% effort, but it wasn't 100%. I started off quickly on each one, and as I tired a little I eased up so that it felt like an overall 85% effort. It was what worked for me today :). I did the 200s in 5:15, so they were about 1:03 each, and my HR was about 160 at the end of each one.
My legs felt very good afterward, invigorated and not tired. I think 15K tomorrow should go just fine...I hope. I'm so pleased that things are improving. I'm almost daring to hope about doing longer distances for fall races, but trying not to get ahead of myself. Let's just take one step at a time. This week: 5 workouts, 2 speed, and one long. Haven't done that in a while. Let's get it done and see what's next.
