5 weeks (and 500m) to go…

Posted by thepeteplan on January 17, 2009

Thursday:

41:15.2 = 11005m / 1:52.4 / 23spm

Friday: Rest

Saturday:

Warm up:
13:08.6 = 3515m / 1:52.1 / 25

1500m = 4:37.5 / 1:32.5 / 35

200m splits:
1:30.2 / 38
1:32.7 / 36
1:32.5 / 36
1:33.0 / 35
1:33.2 / 34
1:33.5 / 35
1:33.0 / 35
1:31.5 / 36

1k slow cool down (really slow)

Finished off with 66 “Jamie’s” and 3 x 12 “Waddell’s”.

Over the past 5 or so weeks I have progressed from 1000m to 1500m at my aimed 2k pace. I started off being strict about the pacing and making each 200m under the 1:32.5, but as the distance gets longer, and so the piece gets harder, the aim is to try to keep each 200m at or under 1:33 (nearly but not quite) and finish on 1:32.5 average. So for a 6:10 2k there is 500m, or 92.5seconds left to go. A 1:32.4 500m following this would finish in 6:09.9, or a 1:34.3 would see me equal my pb. I think once I get to 1700m, and there is under 1min left to the 2k, then I’ll be confident of a pb in Boston, 500m is still a long way to go.
