2 x (5x200m w/200m recovery)

Distance:9.32 km
Avg Pace:5:02 min/km
Elevation Gain:74 m

Pretty much the first time I've ever done a workout like this. Have been feeling like I've been coming down with a cold the last few days. Had acupuncture at uni yesterday which really loosened my calf up, probably will be tight again after today. I was actually going to take the day off as I was feeling pretty shit this morning. Speaking of shit..

Stomach couldn't handle the afternoon run and pace so a big stop in between sets and then couldn't finish the cool down because I had to get to the toilet. Far too much caffeine and sugar. Wasn't quite as quick for the second set after this.

Set 1: 37.8, 37.4, 37.9, 37.4, 40

Set 2: 40.1, 38.4, 39.2, 39.7, 41

McMillan pace calculator puts 35 - 39 seconds as the target time for my level - my legs won't go any faster anyway.

Enjoyed this.
