Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Short and fast: time for intervals

Got a long(er) night and then time to get ready for work. As my watch was still at the office, did not want to do my intervals with a phone in my arms. Therefore got to work, meeting, meeting, meeting and then it was time to go…for this year 🙂
Lunch with a friend at a Chinese buffet and then 2 hours of rest so the food had time to settle in the tummy. Dark by then, but on with running gear and flying DS Skyspeed.
Started with an easy warmup and seriously doubted on the plan to run intervals. Little stretch, set the music and at the first bike passing…off I went. First serie went fine. Took 3 minutes rest, although did not feel it was necessary. The second serie of 200s was a bit tougher in a way, but the while thing so controlled… The last serie went well with stable time for the intervals. Cannot understand that all first intervals were the slowest ones 😦  Ended the run with real easy cool down with short stop at the running store to see if they had some Skyspeed 3, but no. Will really have to carefully take care of my Skyspeed until I get new ones…
Then easy evening, movie and rehab exercises. Now a bit of rest add it is long run on the planning for tomorrow.

    I started doing intervals recently, they are the BEST for burning off any fat.

    • Incorporated intervals in my training before my second marathon, not truly believing it would help whatsoever…
      A bit addicted to it now (as well as long run, hill work or morning sessions…).
      Not doing it for the possible fat-burning though, but to increase the speed and make sure I can hold on shorter race as well.

      Good continuation with your running (and yes, it is OK to run during winter 😉 )
