8 X 8 =
Taking Saturday off did me a world of good. I turned up at speed session this morning feeling more refreshed than I have lately and just as well I did because Coach Chris had a tough session planned. We were to do between 5 and 8 X 800m with a 200m recovery.
I decided to go out conservatively - well it felt conservative but it turned out to be the second fastest split of the morning, 3:38. From there it went to 3:39, 3:40, 3:38, 3:41, 3:41; 3:37 and finally 3:39. How's that for consistency?!! There was only 4s between my fastest and slowest split AND I managed all 8 reps.
So that was the highlight of the day. It's all downhill from here. Work is seriously quiet at the moment and I don't suffer boredom very well. I do have a little work to do but unless the phones start ringing it'll be done by the end of next week. I might have to start sending my baking to school with Luke so he can sell it. How many brownies/cookies/cupcakes would I have to bake to earn a decent income?
