Barry had me down to run a one mile TT on Wed, the afternoon was amazingly warm and humid, you could cut the air with a knife it was that thick!
I decided to run a mile at what felt like 1/2 m pace to fully warm up and I recorded 6.05, after a couple of mins jog I sprinted into my fast mile effort, it felt like hard work cutting through the humid air and I knew straight away I'd be on for a poor time, working very hard I finished with 5.38 [ only two weeks ago I ran a 2 mile tt at 5.37 p] oh well I tried my best. I finished with a steady mile in 5.55 and then jogged home.
In the evening Niz asked me to run with her down to the club session at Dunes
[ 6.30 pm] .
Carol and Christine had almost the full women's X/C Squad out, it was also nice to see some new guys and girls turning up for the session.
Anyways Christine got us to do 8 efforts over the ocean plaza bridge, I ran at the back deciding to take it easy but was shocked to find I was running at 5.20-5.30 pace and it seemed ridiculously easy, strange how running in a group helps you run so much faster than on your own!
