5000m fartlek

My first fartlek of the new program.   I was keen to get stuck into to this and get a good indication of how out of shape I am.

I did a couple of laps to warm up and did some drills as I was doing it.    Paul and Kay decided to join me and do the same.  Kay did hers by fast on straights and slow on curves.  Paul and I did 1km then 500m recovery 500m fast.

I did my usual and started out abit quick which soon had me gasping and eased me back...still 5:42 is my fastest 1km in some time.

2nd 3:10 & 2:52
3rd 3:09 & 2:55
4th  3:09 & 2:53
5th 3:09 & 3:00

Total time 30:05

My last fast 500m and I was totally beat.   But I really tried to give it my all.

Avg heart rate was 162 and my max was 184   .....  thats pretty awful but its a stat point.   Can only get better from here.
