I did a real running workout today! With a stop watch! On a track! Woo-hoo!
Real running is starting again. No more dillydallying around. Just the way I like it.
So the workout. I think that the reason for this 5k prediction workout being the first workout in like forever is to give us an idea where I stand so no guessing in the future workouts. (By the way, I think that it was pretty mean to make me do it without any "warning".)
I have decided to do it on a track for accuracy but I will try to do my workouts on trails.
3x1500 with 2min rest. I walked those 2min, didnt jogged. I need to ease into things:)
I felt horribly! My arms hurt. And it felt like I had zero coordination, like my legs were not connected to my brain. It is all that easy slogging I have been doing for the past 3 months. Legs were ok. Except for the last 150m, that was not very enjoyable.
Other than that it was an ok workout. It went better than I expected because I was not even sure whether I would be able to run 6min.
So what 5k time would that predict???
