Nothing special, just the usual take it as it happens on a Monday after any weekend.
This Monday was much better than usual, felt easy and at a comfortable pace without trying.
Back at work, a short session in the gym.
After chatting with Pam at Deep Space on Sunday, I have decided to slightly change my training for next year with a big mountain run in February then the 24 hour in April.
Both are completely different, so the training with only a month between means the lead up needs to incorporate both speed & endurance.
Tomorrow I will take on the grass in lane 5 at Calwell oval to keep some speed in the legs. This will be important at Coburg.
A few trips to the Thursday track meetings will also help starting on Thursday night with the one hour run. Not sure how this will go, but whatever pace I start out running, I hope to be able to hold that for the 60 minutes.
The aim of this week is to get back over 100 kms for the week, then slowly increase that without losing speed. The cruise intervals are meant to help do that.
