Final race pace trial
Posted by thepeteplan on February 7, 2010
This session was to be tomorrow, but after a rest day yesterday I figured it was a good one to tick off the list today instead.
3k warm up = 11:15.2 / 1:52.5 / 24
1300m = 4:07.0 / 1:35.0 / 32
700m = 2:10.0 / 1:32.8 / 33
Totals: 2k = 6:17.0 / 1:34.2 / 32
This felt much better than the 1200 / 800 last week, and the pace was faster on both reps. No question on the 1300 of sticking to pace, and I was ready to go again before 2mins of the 6min rest. This is a good sign, as anyone who has done a flat out 2k before knows that by the time you get to 1300m you’re pretty knackered, and if you stopped there in a truely flat out attempt you’d not want to do another 700m.
Plan for the rest of the week:
Monday – steady distance around 10k @ 1:50-1:52
Tuesday – rest day as I’m out helicopter flying day and evening, so won’t have time
Wednesday – 30sec on / 30sec off, 16 reps, sub 1:30, 35-36spm
Thursday – short steady if time, but flying to Boston
Friday – warm up and 4 x 500m / 2min rest as race plan
Saturday – rest or paddle and starts
Sunday – race
Looking forward to heading to Boston later in the week, it should be a fun weekend! I’m even starting to look forward to racing the 2k, and feeling good about the pace it will be done at!
