Feel confident that I am building a solid base so decided to put in a first speed session of the year. 1m warm up and aiming for 4m at 8:00 pace then 1m warm down. Route was out and back to Letchworth so uphill for miles 2 and 3, and into a headwind which was very hard work. I managed to put in a 7:42 and a 7:52 to make it to the turn completely knackered, but a 20s walking break sorted that out and hit the next 2 mils in 8:01 and 7:34 before cooling down. A very hard session but felt great to know the speed endurance is still there and a crack at a decent 10k time is not too far away.
