1/10/09: 3M Speed

Skipped a run yesterday as had very long day on Tuesday (in Melbourne for work - early start, late finish) and was feeling pretty puggled for most of yesterday.

Had time to fit it in today though, and did speed session at gym, which I really enjoyed.

1.6km warm up
200m fast, walk recovery
300m fast, walk recovery
300m fast, walk recovery
200m fast, walk recovery
200m fast, walk recovery
1.4km steady - actually kept up quite a good speed on this

Total time 29mins10s, including walking as part of warm up, so pretty pleased with that.

28/9/09: 3.1M @ 9m20s (29 mins)

Bit pushed for time so run slightly shorter than would have liked, but still a good one. Bit faster than meant to go but walked home via shops so got good cool down
