Tonight was our second MAF test. The goal is (obvs) to improve, but since my HR crept up a little too much last time, I expected my overall pace to be a leeeettle slower than last time.
However, I was NOT expecting my overall pace to be nearly TWENTY SECONDS per k slower than last time. Surely I haven't gotten quite THAT much less fit? And surely my MAF pace isn't now what my "steady" pace has been recently? Did inhaling second hand smoke really improve my performance THAT much?
I feel fine, and felt fine during the workout. My MAF interval workouts have been going well, as has training in general (apart from cycling,which has been inside and a bit lacklustre). So what is going on??
Time to eat my jaffle, watch some Glee, email Coach and wallow in my MAFailure grump.
