A little late posting this update, just spent a great weekend in Brussels soaking up the Christmas markets and also plenty of Belgian beer
Last Thursday Week 6 run 3 was successfully completed. Although the weather was a little on the cold side when I set off after getting home from work at 6.30pm, I still felt that too much clothing would make me overheat, so off I set in shorts and short sleeved t-shirt with the only barrier against the cold being a hat (my wife and daughter think I must be mad). Anyway, after the brisk 5-minute warm up off I set for a few laps on my circular route, and judging by my kilometre splits I seemed to have found a steady pace:
1k - 8' 47" (includes 5 minute warm up walk)
2k - 6' 41"
3k - 6' 58"
4k - 6' 48"
and the last .17 km in around 8 minutes (very steady warm down walk)
Looking forward to beginning week 7 this evening.
