I’m really looking forward to my next race. Preparations have gone very well and I only have 2 more days until showtime. The meet website is http://www.sport.be/kbcnacht/2007/eng/ and I’ve been checking it non-stop the last couple of days waiting for heats to come out. I got word that the Heusden Start Lists won’t be out until Friday at noon. I figure my 13:23PB or 13:29SB will put me towards the front of the B section. I hope whatever section I’m in there will be a group going out in a shade under 8:00 for 3000m.
Someone asked to know a little more about my training. Here’s a workout that I did on Monday. The workout consisted of 300, 500, 500, 1000, 500, 400, 300, 200. We had 45 seconds rest everywhere except for on either side of the KM where we took 3.5 minutes. The intention of this workout is to maintain our fitness and 5000m rhythm for the weekend. We practiced getting out fast and then settling into race pace and then picking it up a little of the back end. My splits were 43, 1:18, 1:19, 2:39, 1:18, 62, 45, 28. It was pretty fun to do the workout for Flocasts. Last week I dropped a season low of 120km for the week. I think that was a key reason for me running a PB in the 1500m as my legs felt fresh. I will continue with that sort of volume this week and do one more sharpening session of 200’s before the race.
Leuven is a cool town and its pretty crazy the number of North American athletes here. Every time I go for a run I meet up with someone else on the trails. Here are a few pics of town.
