21K with Three Timed 5Ks (25:11, 28:21, 33:23)
As part of my "Warsaw 73" weight-loss project, i.e. get my weight down from 82 kilos to 73 kilos by the Warsaw marathon in September, I began my 5K sprints again this summer at my IKEA loop, today with three, felt good on the first one but couldn't get below 25:00. I remember doing three or four back-to-back 5Ks for training many years ago and each one was roughly 3 minutes slower than the next which was basically what I got today with the first two, but then had a drop off to 5 minutes between the second and third. It was perfect weather to run: cool and very light rain at the end to cool things off. A little over 100 days till Warsaw.
