As I prepare to write my year end review post and prepare myself for the coming off season. One of the goals that has forever eluded me is the 20 minute 5k.
I was prepared to write about my plans to crush that goal this off season.
The good news is that yesterday during my threshold testing I ran a 5k in 19:53. A new PR by 30s. (My old PR was on a track, this was out on a path).
The bad news is that now I don't know what to write about.
I've been doing threshold testing across the board, even on the bike with my new fit. Funny thing, despite being on the fit for 3 days I was still very close to my previous 20min power tests. If I re-did the test I am confident I could match my previous best. And on the 3 minute test I hit a PB by 12 watts.
Interesting results. I'm a total gym-class hero right now.
