On Wednesday I produced a personal best for 20 laps of Jacob’s Ladder.
It was a warm – no make that hot – morning and being very still it made things tough.
I started at 4:38am, a bit earlier than usual.
My fastest lap was 2:50.15 on lap 6 and my average lap time was 3:08.63.
I took it very easy on lap 1 and then to a lesser degree on lap 2. I really don’t enjoy lap 1 and find it very hard to lean into the pain.
My last 15 laps were done in 45:02 and the last 10 in 30:03. Pretty solid. I’m happy.
Here’s a table with all the lap times.
|1||5:18.42||5:18.42||I hate the first lap. It shows.|
|2||3:28.17||8:46||Better than the first.|
|4||3:03.37||14:56||Lap 4 is usually my fastest lap.|
|5||2:54.26||17:50||Now I'm getting into it.|
|10||3:31.74||32:49||Had a drink and towel down. Cost 30 seconds.|
|12||2:56.69||38:42||How's that for consistency?!|
|19||3:01.71||59:59||19 in under an hour.|
