Original plan was to do 3×1600… turned into a set of some whacked out intervals:
- 1200m, 5:04, 2% incline
- 800m, 3:24, 1%
- 1200m, 5:00, 0%
- 400m, 2:17, 6%
- 400m, 2:15, 6%
- ~482m, 1:02, 6%
4.8 mi total, 46 min, 161 bpm
I probably don’t do enough hill training and I know there’s great value in it. So, I’m going to start incorporating it. The 6% for today was run conservatively… more for self-preservation. I plan to get better at these…man, gotta love how some incline can really work some of those muscles. The last interval was 6% at 7:30 pace… only last 1:02 minutes 🙂
Did leg extensions afterwards (both quads and hams) and half-assly worked my calves.
Anyways, not much to report here..this was a so-so run. And no run yesterday, either. Not off to a great start quite yet, I might double up today and hit the gym again later this afternoon.
Considering doing a carb load for this week’s 7K. We’ll see…
