Tuesday 23rd - AM 30mins easy // PM Track
Run to work
Run to track (because I can't cope with the idea of the sweaty central line)
Track - The ARCollective foolishly but kindly left me in charge of their track session tonight. Yikes. Well, it was hot and hard work but no one died so I think we can call that a success. The session was 800m+1min rest+400m+2min rest. The pace and number depended on the group. Boy were we glad of the watermelon by the end!
Group 1: 7x 400s at 1:25

Thursday 25th - 10min WU, 2x 15min at Marathon Pace, 15min Threshold, 5 min jog, 10min CD

Well, this was one of those sessions that just wasn't happening. I added 5 mins to threshold in first set and 5 mins to MP in second set as I felt I wasn't giving it enough. Tough, not what I'd hoped, for but a good challenge!
