On Tuesday I had to run my first timed repeats since I did the Vancouver marathon on May 4. Some six weeks without them has been nice. But also good to see where I am at.
My sessions was 8 x 500m, with as much rest in between them as I wanted. I did them on a path nearby that has 500m and K markers. The section was flattish with some undulations.
My 500m times were:
I had to report those back to my coach. He said that meant I averaged about 1:48, and gave me a goal for today's session. I have to run 5 1K repeats, with 1 minute rest between each. My goal is to run them in 3:48 or faster.
