The Pete Plan blog


Posted by thepeteplan on December 9, 2012

It is funny how one day you can struggle both mentally and physically, and the next everything feels easy. Yesterday I set out to do a steady 10k at 1:52.5 pace, but felt mentally and physically drained and stopped after just 6k. Today I decided to set 60mins on the monitor with the aim of doing at least 40mins, with the final 20mins being bonus training.

60mins = 16253m / 1:50.7 / 26
10min splits:
1:51.5 / 26
1:51.6 / 26
1:51.7 / 26
1:51.2 / 26
1:50.7 / 27
1:47.6 / 28

The first 40mins felt like a fairly comfortable cruise, hence the slight increase in pace from half way. Then for the last 20mins it was just a gradually increase in pace. This isn’t that fast when I look at the bigger picture of pbs (17116m / 1:45.2), but on current form it is a good solid endurance row. And it is always a good sign when you want to finish longer rows hard.
