Sunday Sprintday (sort of)

27 09 2009

I guess ‘sprint’ is pushing it a bit, but I did what I said I would. Found a fairly flat bit of Dorset track, 7km up and back, tried to do it at 10km pace. Was a bit rougher underfoot than ideal, short sections were just shingle so that slowed me down a bit, but it was a worthwhile exercise.

Did the 7km in 38m 8s, average pace 5m 26s per kilo. I was hoping for a bit less after all the recent hillwork. This pace equates to something like a 54m 33s 10km, which would be about two minutes slower than my PB set about five years ago. So I think that means I’m still not back to full fitness yet, but then again I am five years older.
