1km Repeats

Tonight's workout was 5-7 x 1km at the track. Alan wanted me to do them on 4:45, which seemed ambitious, especially for 7, but I want that PR run in Kelowna so I did 'em all!

1 - 4:38
2 - 4:37
3 - 4:51
4 - 4:44
5 - 4:46
6 - 4:49
7 - 4:50

Joanne is coming back from an injury so she was running my pace, it was great to have someone who's so steady with her speed to run with! We had a few math issues (see lap 1 & 2) and I had a couple of slow km's but I seemed to lose time on one half lap then get back to pace and stay with it for the rest of the kilometre.

I'm at the point where I've put in pretty much all the hard work, nine days until to see how it all pays off!

PS - I don't just want a PR for the run!

PS. The story about me running at your pace because of injury is hooey!

Admit it, girl, you're getting so fast that you're now running at that sub 50min pace.

Big cheers from the fans,
Joanne.

Aw, shucks! Thanks for the votes of confidence.

I'm starting to get excited about the race, which is cool as I've been fed up with training for the past few weeks and just wanting my season to end.
