Day #17

6.9 km evening run with the Den

Second week in a row. Went out to the Den for some intensity work. Ran with the 8:30 min/mile group out to Moody Ales to do some pyramid intervals. After 2km warm up we did:

  • 30s, 45s, 60s, 75s, 60s, 45s, 30s with 30s rest in between
  • 30s, 45s, 60s, 75s, 60s, 45s, 30s with 20s rest in between

It didn’t feel too hard, but not too easy either. I think I will stay in this group for another few weeks and then consider moving up to the 8:00 min/mile group.

And it was starting to get chilly tonight. I like it cold…

Day #12

4km afternoon run with Amelie

Went up to Mundy Park with the intention to run 3 loops on the perimeter trail which would have added up to 12km. Amelie wanted to come along and I thought she might be able to run 2 loops, but the long hill killed her and she was done after the first loop and wanted to go home. The run itself felt harder than I thought despite an easy pace. Perhaps the easy run took more out of me than I thought…

8km afternoon run

After dropping Amelie off at home I ran my standard route down to Alderside and back. Pace was pretty good, but I did feel the distance a little more than I anticipated. But overall a good running day.
