Despite a very hectic work week, I managed to sneak out quickly during lunch.
Ordinarily 3-4 weeks from a trail marathon should typically be a peak mileage week. Trying to ignore my lack of prep here and just bank easy miles.
So today was 5km around the Opera House down to Garden Island and return. Pace was intentionally slow, but coming around Mrs Macquarie’s Chair I decided to switch to 4km at MP. Hence last few splits were around 3:50.
11km all up at 4:26 min/km average page.
The miserable 4km at tempo is all the speed I’ll be doing for the week.
