On Monday I finally took a well deserved day off. Then a speed training on Wednesday: 15 times 400m sprints with 80 seconds of rest in-between. Bloody tiring training, I have to say. But I managed to keep a sub-4:00 min/km average pace, which I consider a good sign. On Friday I again did intervals, though this time longer: 7x 1km, with 4 minutes of rest. I did this same training in the previous week, where I had the same average pace but higher heart rate (161, now 157) -- not bad. Sunday was a test day. I had a running trip planned but it was raining cats and dogs. Still, I managed to get my sorry ass out into the cold (and wet) and did 20K, as planned, wrapping up this week with a total of 72km (again, as planned). Not bad :).

Next week I'm considering another start on 10K on Sunday. But I'll have to decide at the last moment as on Saturday I have a 3 hours long modern dance workshop and it's quite likely that afterwards I'll simply not be in shape for a race. If so: I'll try to run the following week.
