So the plan yesterday was for 16 x 200m in 0:51 seconds with 200m of recovery. SIXTEEN. Seems like an inhumane amount of intervals. Anyway, I was a bit intimidated by the pacing. In my mind, my interval pace is still 5:00 min/km not 4:15 min/km and I had a little trouble wrapping my head around that at first.
Once I got going the mental conversation was more along the lines of “but I can’t run this fast”, followed by “you are running this fast” and then eventually I got to the end. Only two of the intervals were outside the 4:15 pace and not by much, so I was very happy with that.
Third weights session for the week as well. Normally I always run after I lift, rather than the other way around but it’s the school holidays and beggars can’t be choosers.
I love how it threatens me with what I have to lift next time!
But the best part of the day was definitely this reluctant sunrise.
