Week 6 run 1 - intervals return

Hi everyone. I looked at tonight's run and thought it would be pretty easy compared to Saturday's 20 minute run. In truth it wasn't too. As but when that interval came I was so happy for it. Funny isn't it, this psychology lark. Because Saturday I was fine as I knew I didn't have an interval, but today it could come soon enough. Overall the run felt good though.

The uphill wasn't as much of a struggle and I did tweak my route again. For the benefit of @Jancanrun (tags still don't work for me), I have added my stats as a pic. The tweak added a little extra flat for me so tonight was only a 26m gain but was actually 200m further in distance. I'm an accountant so I genuinely love statistics πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ“

I have to add, I did this run quite late, and after a full day at the zoo I'm surprised in myself that I actually got ready and went at all! But, I am planning on doing run 3 on Saturday morning at my local park run (1st PR) and if I didn't go tonight then it would totally ruin my new running social calendar.

Well done. I find trying to stick to a routine helps. I usually try for Monday, Wednesday, Friday and then have a 2 day break at the weekend. Keep it upπŸ‘

Monday, Wednesday and Friday are my preferred days too but life is so hectic at times that I don't let it worry me too much if I can't stick to it x

Hi MrsT82 so well done you, nice pace too. I love the idea of a running social calendar, it's such a nice concept. And the stats it's interesting when you take out the inclines how much further you run... my latest obsession is the tracks that play on randomised shuffle. I know random means in theory you could get the same song coming up x times in succession, because the algorithm is random. But it still seems wrong to me that I hear Duffy's Mercy a bit too often. Have a great time at your Park Run. Brilliantly done as ever.πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ’»

I've totally only just realised that Erica is at a birthday party at 10am Saturday and as my husband can't drive I have to take her. So no park run for me 😫 going to have to go out first thing and do run 3 then instead x

Well done. W6R1 is harder than W5R3 and catches many out. You seemed t enjoy it though which is great.
