Onto week 6, back to intervals, and have made another attempt at finding a circular route rather than the straight up the canal and back again route that I normally do. Went for a walk last night to check out a park which is in a triangle between two rivers and a mill. The walk was 3k, which I thought would be long enough, and if not I could always do circuits round the park. Anyway I did the 5 minute walk and 5 minute run that starts this morning's run, then started walking around it for the 3 minutes, then for the 8 minutes run in the middle I had to do 4 more circuits of the park. It felt really peculiar going round a track like that, but at least it was deserted and I had the whole park to myself (apart from a limping goose). I'm not sure if I would like to just do circuits round the park in future, but I'm thinking I could add it in to my route along with longer stretches up and down the canal, at least for the variation... I set the endomondo app going today, and the whole session was actually more like 4k including warm up walks etc. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, seeing as I'm meant to be aiming for 5k... The quest for a circular route continues...
