My aim is true

Yesterday was a return to the routine, with a vengeance. Cycled both ways and ran from office to Paddington in the evening - over six miles, I reckon, though I must measure it. Then a track session this evening, 8x600m with 200m recoveries. Add the 4-lap warm-up and that makes 8K. The 600s I did in around 2:40 each: I calculated that 4 minutes per K is 2:24 per 600m, so bearing in mind how I normally do a 5K (first km in under 4 minutes, then the other four a lot slower, about 4:30) that was rather better than 5K pace, which is what we were instructed to aim for. Feeling good!
