My 1k session last night was a great one. It all started after a regular day at my work, no extra hours there and arriving home early enough for the training session later that day.
I wasn´t feeling too tired and decided to go and see how it would be. The only problem was a I hadn´t eaten properly during the afternoon and the past busy days didn´t allow me to go to the supermarket.
With not too much in the tank I left home. Warm up was nice, 11 minutes at easy pace. Quick stop to sip water, adjust the watch, concentrate and go!
The session started really good. First, second, third and fourth reps were faster than programmed pace. But I started feeling hungry (yes, at the end of 4th rep I could really eat something!) and without energy. Of course I was getting tired, but I´d certainly keep that pace if I had eaten properly.
I still want to see how I´ll behave on my 5k session this Saturday. The 4:15/km pace seems plausible now. Keeping fingers crossed!
