Preparing for 10K

Last week three times 4.2km as part of Team Tuxera doing DHL Runfest. Pace 3.25-3.30/km and 20 mins in between. Next Sat there is the annual 10K Midnight Run. Looks like 35 mins is again a reasonable goal although I haven’t really run that much.

Still not there

Another trial today. 1000m in Myyrmäki 3.00,2. Second lap was a bummer, over 75 secs in some wind. Steps to the top of the Malminkartano hill 1.18,5, the first time I ran it through. I guess dropping that time under 1.10 should be doable. Going under 1 mins would need serious training and polishing technique.

Summer running wrap-up

Quite similar summer compared to last year. Occasional training, just a few random competitions. Season started in April with Kormu Run half marathon in 1.19.14. Then again Iitti hölkkä in July clocking in at 35.54, which is almost identical to 2015. Tried a few times to break 3 mins barrier in 1.000m without success so far. A couple weeks ago managed 3.00,1 which means I need to hit the track again. Today a couple 2K repeats at home course in 6.45 and 6.49, then felt energies down. The best one so far has been three repeats in 6.45 or 3.22/km avg pace. The one competition left and main goal of the season is the same as two past years: Midnight Run 10K, three weeks from now.
