Although PBs are long gone, happy to report being Sub 7 again for 2k
6:58.6 in last night's warmth. Some minor demons towards the end, but just about held it.
Life in the old dog yet :-)

Another 500m improvement from 2.08 to 2.07 :D . Original pace goal for this session was 2.13 taken from the last set of 500 intervals. While embedded in a set of intervals I did the last one from a stationary start. Faster than my best time I only set a week ago. This makes me more hungry to get it below 2, then I will be very excited. The combination of the beginner pete plan (week 11 so far) 5 days a week, walk/run 3 days and added in 3 strength days at the gym a couple of weeks ago, plus just 1 session with a rowing coach (this will be once a month) must all be adding up to something. :D

A further 5s of this seasons 2k this morning. 8:54.7 from 8.59.8 on the last interval from a 3 x 2000m session. :D

Working on that next goal of 8:30, might be held up a bit with some travel for work over the next 3 weeks.
