Solo Intervals - Yuck!
I really don’t like interval training. At all.
But if there’s one thing to make me Big and Strong and Tough, then this is it. So that’s what I did for my morning run today - I jogged up to Churchill Playing fields, where there’s a 400m track, and then did 4 x 700m intervals, with a jog back to the start line between each as a recovery.
700m intervals aren’t all they could be, but on a track (which for me is soul destroying running at any time), and alone, this is the best I can do. Running in a group, mile intervals are no worse though - isn’t it amazing how a little company can lift / spur you on?
My time for the four was 2:45 / 2:45 / 2:48 / 2:52, so reasonably consistent. Maybe I should have pushed a bit harder, or done a fifth repeat just to stress things a little further . . .
