After a day of rest from exercising on Wednesday I went right to the health club after work last night to get in my weekly repeat workout per the FIRST schedule I’m following for the Athens Ohio marathon (see link below). Last night I had on the prescription plate a mile w/u then a 1k repeat at 4:03 pace with a 400 meter recovery walk/jog then into a 2k repeat at 8:26 pace with a 400 meter recovery walk/jog then into another 1k repeat at 4:03 pace with a 400 meter recovery walk/jog then into the final 1k repeat at 4:03 pacing and to finish things off a mile c/d.
Confusing yes but 1st you have to break-up what is a kilometer:
1km = 1000meters = 0.6213xxxxx…miles
Then run that properly on a treadmill…yikes!
Below are my specific distance & times with average & max HR values:
1km – 3:59 pace – AHR 146bpm – MHR 153bpm
2km – 8:16 pace – AHR 148bpm – MHR 157bpm
1km – 3:57 pace – AHR 151bpm – MHR 158bpm
1km – 4:00 pace – AHR 151bpm – MHR 159bpm
So Friday is my scheduled usual rest day so I can run a properly paced 4th – 20 miler Saturday morning at the lakefront bright & early…
