Day 4 – Intervals

29 May

Comments: What great running weather! It could have been a titch cooler, but I take the below 60 degree run anyday. I need to do interval training once a week to become a faster runner. Today was the day. In the past I’d run 1/4 of a mile at a decent pace, then pick it up, then recover, pick it up, and so on. But usually by the time I get to my second to last set I am not running much faster than a snail. In order to be still able to pick up the pace at the end, I decided to walk a bit more during the recover period. For one, it makes me stronger at the end, and for two I enjoy the run just a bit more and don’t have my tongue hanging down to my feet when I finish. I don’t like those kind of runs.

Tomorrow is my first group run. 6 miles. I am looking forward to it, just not the hour long drive there and back home. 😮

Considering the amount of walking I did today during my run, I am very pleased with the time, and the fact that I didn’t kill myself out there.
