My highly specialised run training seems to be paying off as I seem to be getting faster and stronger. So, what’s the secret? Well, I do very little running at all and each time I go out I seem to improve.
My latest run was an interval session, building on the last time I did about two months ago. As promised then, I added an extra interval on today so my entire session was:
- 5 min warm up (no Target Pace / Heart Rate)
- Main Set: 5x
- 0.3 miles Hard – Target pace of 9.3 – 9.6 mph (6:15 – 6:30 mins / mile)
- 3 mins Recovery – No target
- Followed by 3 minute cool down
It all went well, I completed the workout and even felt good. It was quite hard at times but my pace was good and if anything it was a little too fast with the third hard interval actually being at an average pace of 6:02 mins /mile.
Good stuff! I’ll do a couple more of those before upping it to 7 intervals.
