5km fast

26 03 2008

(fast for me that is)

My, now routine, gym session went well tonight.  I went a bit later so only had time for just over half an hour of run…  I started with a 800m warm up, before resetting the machine and trying for 5 km in under 25 minutes.

After a couple of kilometers in I decided to push the pace up for 400m at a time.  I tried to do this right to the end, but could only manage the last 200m at the faster pace to the finish.

5 km in 00:24:15

what an excellent time for a 5km (fast)!

I am training for my first 10km race. I am focusing in increasing my pace because I am a serious slow poke. I have done two marathons and numerous half marathons so I am looking to improve my times in both events.

10km training is indeed challenging.

Good luck and have fun!
