As I have been running aimlessly since graduating 2 weeks ago, I thought I would look at a 5k training plan & found the Race for Life plan. On it is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). I have done it before but a looooong time ago so thought I would give it a go. Read through an article about it, heart rate should be 85% of maximum as working above this has no health benefits and may lead to injuries. Downloaded a superb app which uses my phone's music, set the limits and went out. Result? It is an excellent interval timer and it has made me realise that I since graduating, I have been running too fast. It has made me slow down my pace and accept that I am running at the correct pace for my age and that running faster at the moment will just get me to the injury couch. I have no doubt that as my fitness levels increase, I will get faster but that at the moment I am being too impatient. Still, at least I have set a baseline and have a goal to achieve.
