My plan for today was to run with a higher overall pace than normal and try to include 5 or 6 fast sections. I guess you could call this a tempo workout. I set off at a moderately fast rate and maintained if for half of the workout as shown below:
For the last two miles, I did struggle a little but wasn’t really much below my normal average pace.
It shows that I can run at a faster pace.
Therefore, I intend to keep using Fartlek training but to increase the length of each section from 30 seconds to 45 seconds.
During a walk this evening, I even considered some hill repeats. Might give that some more thought before committing though!
Next run Wednesday. 5 miles with fast sections.
