One of the last hard workouts but a little bit easier vs the trend of increasingly harder Tuesday workouts. Today's workout was 5x1km @10k pace, followed by 5x200m @5k pace with 30 second rests between the 200's (felt kind of like tabatas).
The night before I almost felt like I was coming down with a cold and worried a little bit about pushing it, but felt fine after the warm up.
Route was straight down Lakeview, turn right onto Sandy Hook road to it's first turn for 1km. Did the 2 minute rest/jog by going a little farther and then back the way I came for the next repeat. During the first one I was running about a 6:45 pace at first and forgot that it was supposed to be 10k pace, thinking it should have been half marathon pace so started to slow down but fortunately remembered the correct pace, picked it up a little bit.
1k repeat paces: 6:40. 6:30, 6:38, 6:28, 6:31
200's were pretty fun, ran those a little fast : 5:42, 6:13, 6:04, 5:53, 5:59
Just a few more big workouts left!
