The handicap on Sunday did not end up being a particularly good run. That was because I did a tough training session on Saturday and my legs were tired on Sunday. Saturday I did 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 min hard with 1 min recovery between reps with Minnie, Kirsten and Tori. It was hard work and we did manage to get quicker with each rep. Hence, on Sunday, the legs went WTF?! when I asked them to 'race' the handicap. In the end, all I could manage was a tempo run, HR hovered around 150bpm, I just couldn't run harder. Given that tiredness, I didn't push my luck and run in the afternoon to get the Ks up. A nice nana nap was taken in place.
Saturday - 5.5K warm up @ 5:52min/K pace; 6 to 1 interval session 5.2K, then a 600m jog cool down. Followed by brunch at Sea Salt.
Sunday - 2K warm up with Heids (very humid, very sweaty!), 6.2K handicap, naughty no cool down, brunch at Scope Cafe on Mount Stromlo. Total for the week 65K
Monday - 11.2K HRav 124 bpm, around 6:15min/K pace.
