The first five weeks (conditioning) of the 5K program are complete. The next stage is competition, this involves sharpening and a reduction in mileage. I'm not to keen on bringing my mileage down as its only averaging 54 miles a week. The lessons learned from the USATF race was pacing and endurance. Todays workout showed both are in awry.
Scheduled 8 x 600 meters with a two minute rest.
I figured to run these between 1:53 to 1:57
w\u - 15:31
1-1:00-1:29 oops only ran 300 meters!
8-1:59-1:27 (14:55 total time, 5:19 average)
c\d - 17:08
a little on the slower side, but that's okay!
