The Pete Plan blog

Back to the programme

Posted by thepeteplan on April 17, 2012

It’s time to get back on the plan now. The 5k training group started 3 weeks ago, so I am starting 3 weeks behind the majority of them, but better late than never.

Week 1, core session 1.

15 x 500m / 1min rest:
1:41.6 / 29
1:41.5 / 29
1:41.5 / 29
1:41.4 / 29
1:41.2 / 30
1:40.8 / 30
1:40.7 / 30
1:40.7 / 30
1:40.6 / 30
1:39.9 / 31
1:40.6 / 30
1:40.7 / 30
1:39.8 / 30
1:38.6 / 31
1:34.1 / 34

Total = 7500m / 25:04.0 / 1:40.2 / 30

Initially I decided on a target of just under 1:42 for 5 then judge it from there. Then I decided on sub 1:41 for the next 5. I over cooked number 10 a little, and didn’t have the confidence to try to stay sub 1:40 from there. 2 reps to go and the voice in my head said “I bet you can’t get the overall average sub 1:40”. I didn’t really have a good idea how fast I’d need to go in order to get that, but was pretty sure the voice was right, I couldn’t. But I was willing to give it a go. As it turns out I think I would have needed to be 1:31 or just under on the last rep. Had I known that I doubt I would have gone as fast as I did though!
