Speed work is back

Yesterday I had my first quality session of this year. Based on the result of my 4k time-trial, the session would be a 5x2k at 4:25min/km with 90s rest.

I knew it would be tough. After 9 weeks of Off Period and Build Up without any quality session, the first one is always tougher. Add to this a warm week. The temperature during training time is around 27C to 30C. Result: I could run 4 reps.
