I honestly thought it was about to storm tonight and had planned to use the treadmill at home. Lucky for me the rain stopped so I headed to the track. Robyn had just pulled up and was heading out to walk a road course but said she would do a few laps if I was still on the track when she finished.
I started out and settled into a nice pace. My big focus tonight was to get a nice long stride. I feel I cant go faster until i can be more flexible. I was a little surprised when my first km was 6.07 I didnt feel I was walking that quickly.
Km 2, 5 & 7 are the ones I did the bursts in. Not sure how fast I did my bursts in but they felt faster.
It wasnt much fun walking by myself so I just focused on style and counting laps. So I was thrilled when robyn joined me out on the track.
Tonight my time for 8km was 49.13 ........ last week my 8km fartlek was 49.54 .... so thats a bloody good improvement.
After we finished we quickly took some photos and I was so pleased how my stride has lengthened.
