Training was again pushed to after work today, and I was both short of time and energy to do much. I decided on a solid 2k – ie not overly faster, but well under 5k pace. The aim was to go hard at the start, cruise at just under 5k pace, then go hard at the end. After a 2k warm up this is how it went:
2k = 6:31.4 / 1:37.8 / 30
500m splits: 1:35.8 / 31, 1:39.8 / 29, 1:39.8 / 30, 1:36.1 / 31
A short warm down and that was all I had time for today…..
