Well it seems to be 2k time in Q-Power (i've been a little out of sync with the training plan recently what with the baby, Mrs redundancy, RowStrongForBoston etc - but the rest of the team have been training hard and yesterday and today the majority of them have been knocking off 2k's - great - thank guys FFS :lol: ) so with that in mind I thought I'd better get one done and share the pain. Legs still complaining from the CTC on Tuesday and last night I went out on a hour long bike ride to burn some calories as I had actually gained a kg somehow (it worked and I'm back down again now to 110.5kg)
Bike ride details here ==> http://connect.garmin.com/activity/337574680 bit slow according to Pete M ( :lol: ) but in my defence there is a bloody hill in the middle!
Oh wait - you came for the 2k didn't you - OK through the warm up and did think that maybe the legs where too burnt - but then decided that come a race day legs burnt or not I'm still going to have to suck it up - so I did - the plan - well 1:33 flat for the first 1500m and then try and dip under 6:10 ....
stupid 0.3 of a second - OK so the legs did hold me back in the end - but when I think that I basically only decided to do the 2k this morning off no speed work at all (in fact I've been doing low rate work only for three or more weeks) then I can't complain too much - onwards and upwards!
Now to be honest I know without even looking at the video my technique was horrid today – I put that down to not working on any speedwork recently – and I’m sticking to that excuse! :lol:
