Phil with a new 5k PR:
+ great pacing despite solo TT on track
+ very relaxed, didn't hurt / had to suffer at any time
+ best breathing and legs in a 5k ever
+ just a few seconds below PR in a real race
+ weight was quite high, 165 lbs
- digestive problems, really bad after 2 miles and shat myself on the last 300m. Very high humidity and generally overeating probably caused it.
- even without digestive problems, motivation is low to speed up and kick really hard. Threshold/CV training was very effective, but I lack the mindset to go really hard at the end of a hard effort that I had when I trained with harder workouts
Overall, quite pleased with where I am right now, now I just have to drop these 33s until September for a 15:45.
Wait a moment. Have you created a new account to talk to yourself?
