Lap time question

I'm embarking on my W8R2 tomorrow and want to improve my timings a bit. I managed Run 1 with relative ease, but I ran slowly on purpose to conserve energy for the full 28 mins - and it worked!

However, does anyone have a favourite lap/Kilometre when they turn the turbo boosters on? Usually in a 4K run my l2nd and 3rd K are the fastest, but the 4th is slow cos I've run out of puff!

Or should I just forget timings and mop up the distance?

Answers on a postcard please.......HAHA!

  • Forget times vs and distance for this week and next. The week after, when you've graduated introduce yourself to the 5k+ podcasts with Laura, that'll help you with speed and distance.

  • Brilliant. Thank you!

  • I'm glad you asked about this danzargo, I'm finding I've started to get obsessed about pace and time now I use 'runkeeper.' Thanks for the sound advice 'Beads.'

    Good luck with your run tomorrow.
