January 20, 2006
Firstly, I have to apologise if I don't manage to get my training news up on the day I actually to the run in question but I'm so busy at present, it often slips my mind!
Yesterday's training was one of the harshest sessions I've done so far but for that reason I felt the best after it and it taught me a lot about the mental stamina I'll need. The session was a threshold run of full power for 10mins followed by a 2 min rest jog then another 10mins at full power then finish. Sounds easy? It's actually really knackering and the worst thing is that it would be so easy to just back off the speed and pretend you're running at full power.
Another issue is that I can't run by the road at that speed. I'm breathing that heavily that I end up feeling sick from the fumes. In futurem high speed runs will be done in the countryside!
My heart rate monitor has completely packed up so I'm going to email the guy who sold it me. It wasn't expensive but still, it's annoying when someone does you over!
The next session is an easy run for half an hour this evening after some TKD training.
