Tonight I completed week two of my Yasso 800 Speed Challenge. I was lucky that the weather gods were smiling down on me, as it was a temperate 21 degrees Celsius out tonight, rather than the hot humid weather so many of us runners have experienced over the last few days.
I have to admit I felt a bit tentative as I left my house and headed out to the track located a little over 2km from my house. My 20 km trail run was really tough on Sunday, with the temperature well over 30 degrees, and my legs still felt heavy as I started out.
Here's how I made out:
Interval one: 3 minutes, 42 seconds
Interval two: 3 minutes, 44 seconds
Internal three: 3 minutes, 44 seconds
Interval four: 3 minutes, 43 seconds
Interval five: 3 minutes, 37 seconds
Hubs took a picture of me during my last set (a little blurry)
I am very pleased with this weeks result! I really concentrated on my form and relaxing. It felt great to have a good hard run! My total distance was a little over 8km with warm up and cool down.
On the training menu for this week I have planned:
Monday: am - boot camp
Tuesday: pm - Yasso-8km
Wednesday: am- boot camp, pm-10km trail run
Thursday: pm running boot camp (approximately 6-7km running)
Friday: am -boot camp
Sunday - 20-24km trail run
Hope you all have great workouts this week! Thanks for reading!
