April 2015 - Training recap

Track season finally arrived. And with it, an incredible peak of tiredness through the second half of the month. Something very close to what the Germans call "Spring Tiredness" (wikipedia link) or, to be fair and formally correct, "Frühjahrsmüdigkeit". Non-German readers: please don't close the page now. It's three words in one, nothing more than that, don't be scared.
Anyway, despite this huge lack of forces that asked for more than one day off, I can definitely say I started with the right foot. First race over the 3000 m SC and personal best (10:15.75), simply controlling the splits and running as smoothly as possible. Nothing great, but another small brick in the wall before the intense month of May.

As usual, you can see all my training sessions details on the SportTracks mobi service.
