After a rest day yesterday, I’m persevering with the intervals despite the fact that I don’t enjoy them. I couldn’t even complete the first one and had to walk the last 50 metres, although when I downloaded the data I realised why: I went out far too quick.
I now have 4 weeks (once a week) of 8 x 400m followed by 2 weeks of 6 x 400m then the Melbourne marathon (10k) – each 400m interval is followed by another 400m walk/jog.
My overall time per k is better than the previous 2 weeks, but the sprint legs were slower. The former is due to my jogging for much of the walk/jog interval, so I’m not sure if I’m making progress or not. Going to tough it out until MM and then reevaluate their worth for my next training regime.
Chelle’s 4th week planner see’s her up the run part of her workout to 7/8/9 minutes for M/W/F which equates to about 1k. Yesterday she completed her first ever km without stopping – that’s quite an achievement!
Signed both Harry and Chelle up for the Sri Chimnoy (Maribyrnong) 4k this week although there seems to be some ambiguity over the dates – the website states: 17th October, but my receipt says 14th November – have emailed them and am waiting for a response.
