But then again, too few to mention!
This morning was the second day of our (Andrew & mine) twelve week plan for the Run Melbourne half.
This morning’s interval training had me at two “regrets”:
- I let Andrew talk me into his training plan, which looked hard enough without times
- I also let him convince me that 4:30min/k’s would be acceptable??
My silence until this morning was confirmation of my acceptance. 1000m is a bloody long way when you’re trying to run it fastish and within 500m I was ruing my silence and puffing like a one lunged smoker. The rest break between the runs was only 90 seconds – how quick does that go?
Whilst we both had a Garmin on, mine was set up for the intervals and I had no idea of the pace, whereas Andrew knew the pace but not the distance. All four intervals felt incredibly slow and I was expecting close to 5:00min/k’s.
Pleased to see that we only missed out by 10 seconds and each k was within 4 seconds of each other. The warm up was supposed to be 15 minutes but I forgot to start the watch for the first 9 minutes!
All in all it was a hard session and I can reflect that if it wasn’t for Andrew I would probably have adjusted the times to make it easier for me. So thanks again mate -the planner is perfect!
