Earlier in the week I ran a mile TT and was also disappointed to be slow at only 6.17 but feeling I could perhaps keep that kind of pace up for much longer. Today I ran the first mile in 6.13 [so clearly the TT wasn’t the best I could do] a little faster than planned but I wanted to see what pace I could keep up for how long? Slowed drastically in the middle [but still at half way 10 seconds faster than last week] and although I speeded up the last mile I couldn’t pick up speed again enough to do the 19.40 I think I should have done.
Still, 73.72% age graded and that’s equivalent to 17.30 for a 20-30 year old runner so not all bad. Also improvements are not to do with weight loss, as another bloody month at the same heavy weight.
