Went for a run with Mahoney in the afternoon. 8.4km feeling good. That evening was the Vic Milers 800m and 3km so run of the day would have to go to Sammy who put down a massive 8:42. The atmosphere was so good, it made me want to run fast so I'll hopefully sign up for the next Vic Milers and it's a 1500m on the cards.
Was training and inspired after the previous night's elite times and was keen to train hard. We were given 5 x 400m with 2 minutes passive recovery and 4 x 200m with 1 minute passive. Felt pretty good and these were the times:
400s - 66s, 64s, 64s, 64s, 63s
200s - 28s, 29s, 29s, 28s
Pretty stoked to be honest. 10km all up.
Easy run of another 8.4km with Sam plus some strides at the end. Decided I'll race the shield 5000m on the track Saturday so should be good. Not tapering at all so nothing special should be expected.
Got my P plates today so getting around just got a lot easier. Bit nervous for tomorrow, had a chat lunch so feeling a bit gross, hopefully sweat it out tomorrow.
