The week got started with a tempo run on Tuesday. The scheduled workout this week was the same as last week, 4 x (5 minutes @ 5:00/km followed by 5 minutes @ 4:00/km). As with last week it does not look like a tough workout on paper but I was feeling it by the time I got to the fourth set so it was not an easy workout.
Yes day was once again time for short hill sprints…

I used the hill above for my sprints yesterday. It is not the biggest hill but enough of an incline to make me work harder for the 100 m sprints and when you add in jumping squats after each set it was not an easy workout. My quads are feeling it today.
As mentioned, I have two runs left to do this weekend. Tomorrow will be 8 km with 6 km of that coming at race pace. Finally, Sunday will see me get in my last long run ahead of race day with an easy 32 km effort.
