30mins hard effort

Posted by thepeteplan on August 30, 2012

30mins = 8306m / 1:48.3 / 26
5min splits:
1:49.0 / 26
1:49.0 / 26
1:49.0 / 26
1:48.7 / 27
1:48.3 / 27
1:45.9 / 28

In context, this is not as quick as my half marathon pb pace, and is some 5+ seconds slower pace than my 30min pb. However, in the context of my current fitness level and training volume and intensity I am happy with the row this evening. For the rate and effort level it gives me a good idea of my current capabilities, and the consistency in pace is good. I nearly didn’t train today after a long day at work, but I generally try to preach that you can always find 30mins in a day to exercise rather than watch tv, play on the internet or sit on your bum on the sofa. If it counts for other people it counts for me.
