Thursday - 5.30pm - Run
Training at Dickson oval
Distance: 6.8km

Only 8 people turned up for training tonight, probably due to the threatening black clouds. During the warm-up it started to rain (what a beautiful smell) and it was a fairly good downpour which only lasted for the duration of the first warm-up lap - just enough time to become drenched! Then the rainbow appeared and the sun shone briefly through the clouds. We continued training without any more rainfall. After another warm-up short lap our main set consisted of:

5 x 400m laps on 6mins
Thus we had quite a long rest between each 400m and ran one less than last week.

Lap 1: 1:57
Lap 2: 1:51
Lap 3: 1:49
Lap 4: 1:51
Lap 5: 1:48

At least I was faster than last week but that could have something to do with the fact that we ran from the opposite side of the track which meant we finished on a slight downhill rather than a slight uphill. I also had the motivation of racing against Jodie who is a similar pace to me and I wanted to race her against the finish line!

  1. No, you are getting faster! Very impressive, but I don't want you to be too fast for our long runs!
