All Is Good

12 06 2012

So I managed 8 x 0.5m intervals with a mile warm up and warm down.

After a full weekend of running I took Monday off and rested. I was a little bit apprehensive about doing the full 8 intervals thinking that my legs would surely be tired, but no they felt really good. I have to admit that I programmed the session into my Garmin and before I set off I dropped my max pace from 6 min/m to 6.5. Never the less I managed to stick to nearer 6.5 min/m or less and my last interval was at 5:52 pace!

Wednesday nights are turning into my easy run night so I guess it’s 4 miles with the pooch tomorrow. Then Thursday is tempo night. 5 miles at 6.5-7 min/m pace with a warm up a cool down. I haven’t decided how this weekend is going to plan out yet but I’m hoping to get another 2 runs in totalling between 20-22 miles. I’ve also started to add some core work after my runs which, it has to be said, is a weak area for me. I hate it! But it prevents injury and is supposed to improve your running technique.

All in all I’m feeling positive at the moment, can’t wait to get back out tomorrow.
