60´ incl. 5 k "fast and relaxed" in 22:53 on a muddy and slightly hilly road. I´m not worried, it will get faster soon.

34´ easy, 3 strides

Using a 4-day recovery block to test what works for my immediate marathon taper (last week). Looks like:

Monday: rest

Tuesday: 30-40´ easy with strides

Wednesday: rest

Thursday: 30-40´ easy with strides

Friday: return to normal schedule

 

There are 2 more opportunities when racing a 10k and a half to find out what works for me.
