some speedwork today, was wanting to hit 3x1000 in 3:35-3:40 and i did that. Am pretty happy with how much fitness I carried over to this cycle. I set my watch to km and did one on one off, kind of like a fartlek, here are my ons: 3:39, 3:35, 3:34, then I did two 400s at harder pace hit 80 and 82 seconds each. 6.3 total mileage

speedwork today, did 3.6k hard then stopped suddenly, just got tired, was at about 13:12 through this (5:47 pace-ish), my km splits were 3:37, 3:37, 3:35, then change for the .6 after that I did 2 more 1k repeats with .4 easy after the 3.6 hard before the first then a 1k easy jog before the last 1k hard, hit those in 3:30 and 3:25, the last one felt pretty hard effort-wise, overall 7.2 today, felt pretty good with the turnover especially in the last 2 km.
