Tempo Run – 6K

I had a bit of extra energy today, which is quite rare. I decided to do a tempo run instead of an easy run. Basically, I kept my heart rate at around 80% of maximum. Although I was overheating (again), I finished 5K in 35:06, which is a pace of 07:01 per kilometre including the walking intervals. I took it easy for the next kilometre and got a good walk in at the end.

I would be very happy to finish my next 5K in under 30 minutes, but we’ll have to see. That might be a bit too much time to shave off, even with hill repeats.
