So tonight I set out to do some interval training. My training program required me to do 7x5mins at Race Pace with 3 min recovery jogs in between.
As the intervals were quite long I reasoned that I would get bored doing laps in the park so headed out on my usual route.
Technical problems & hills meant that I ended up just running the first half at a steady speed, I then picked up with the intervals got myself to the park & quite enjoyed the end of the run.
So the lesson I have learnt is to do intervals in the park. Even if its boring at least I'll get to actually do them!
On the plus side my times at last seem to be improving.
