Week 16 (WEEK SIXTEEN??!! Eeeek), Day 2
Goal: 16 x 200m in 45 seconds (6:02 min/miles) with 60 seconds jog (4 miles total)
Actual: 16 x 200m in 45 seconds (6:02 min/miles) with 60 seconds jog (4 miles total)
This was a nice session as it gave me a chance to have a bit of a run but with a nice long recovery in between. Perfect – almost lazy – intervals.
I did these on a treadmill as the last time I’d run (Sunday) I’d cut it short as I’d had a bit of pain behind my knee and I wanted to be able to stop if this came back. But there was nothing – no twinge, no ache or anything. In fact I didn’t even think about the knee until I got back to work ... so it was obviously a Taper Paranoia twinge! Appears mysteriously and disappears just the same.
15 x intervals at 5:56 min/mile (16.2kmph)
Jog recoveries at 10:43 min/mile (9kmph)
1 x interval at 5:08 min/mile (19kmph) ... it was my final interval before the Paris marathon! Had to go out with a bang!
