Ready to race

I´m now on my final week towards the 8k race this Saturday night. Last week´s training was good. Could run six times, had a great 1k session and a surprising 5k time. Could get my bike and have an easy ride last Sunday. After a few days of heavy work load, my routine is back and my training is going well.

I started this morning with a 3x5min at race pace (4:15/km) with 1min easy. Not as comfortable as I wanted, mostly because it wasn´t a night run, but was good to remember the pace I want to follow for this race. If I´m able to do that, will be an amazing result. Now only a couple of easy runs and a rest day before the big day.

This third week starts today with fartlek session. Then a couple of easy runs and on Saturday I´ll test to see my current fitness. I still have to discuss with TheEd what sort of test I´ll perform this Saturday and I know it won´t be a 4k time-trial. Let´s see what´s coming.
