2 weeks to go…

Posted by thepeteplan on November 30, 2012

Not until a race, but until the end of term on my masters degree. The significance to training is that it will then give me more time for it, as I have a break in studying until after easter 2013.

Today a 500m reps session, and the first time doing anything faster than 1:37 pace (aside from the 2k race 2 weeks ago) for quite some time:

8 x 500m / 2:30 rest:
1:36.0 / 33
1:35.9 / 33
1:35.9 / 33
1:35.8 / 33
1:35.4 / 34
1:35.6 / 34
1:35.0 / 34
1:34.3 / 34

4000m = 12:43.9 / 1:35.4 / 33

Other recent sessions of note have included a 6344m row for the Concept2 challenge series last Monday:

6344m = 22:18.5 / 1:45.4 / 28
1k splits:
3:31.8 / 1:45.9 / 28
3:31.8 / 1:45.9 / 29
3:31.8 / 1:45.9 / 28
3:31.8 / 1:45.9 / 28
3:31.8 / 1:45.9 / 28
3:31.0 / 1:45.5 / 28
1:08.7 / 1:39.8 / 31

A 5 x 750m reps session and a 4min reps session the week before:

5 x 750m / 3min rest:
2:26.0 / 1:37.3 / 32
2:25.9 / 1:37.2 / 32
2:25.9 / 1:37.2 / 32
2:25.9 / 1:37.2 / 32
2:24.5 / 1:36.3 / 33

3750m = 12:08.2 / 1:37.0 / 32

Wednesday 21st:

4 x 4mins / 3min rest:
1177m / 1:41.9 / 29
1177m / 1:41.9 / 30
1177m / 1:41.9 / 30
1191m / 1:40.7 / 30

16mins = 4723m / 1:41.6 / 29
