Sammy Wanjiru interview Marathon talk Podcast and my best workout for a long time :]
RUBBISH 5K Results and Pics available soon!
Picked up a really good posture tip from 'BAREFOOT JOSH' which sorted out a problem I've had for some time.
The result was I had one of my best workouts since running the Marathon !
location Kings Gardens
13 x 2 mins at 5.44 pace with 1 mins rec, set the virtual partner on my Garmin and had a ball working hard to keep in front of him, he came past me 3/4 into the workout but i fought back and beat the bugger!
It made me laugh to see 'YOU WON' flash up on the Garmin, 'YES, YES, YES', ha,ha:]
Finished with 26 mins of running at 5.44 pace, the running tip to imagine being pulled by a rope tied around your hips stopped me sitting back when i run [which is a very bad habit of mine] and the end result was everything started to flow along just great, got quite excited about how much better my running form improved, AWESOME :]
finished with 5 x smart strides, total time 1 hour 6 mins
Nice relaxed run over the big sand dunes with Tess = 1.48
Scientific report showing why Marius Bakken type active recoveries work so well [ ie, alternating 5 mins at 10k pace, 3 min active recover at marathon pace.
