Completed W4 R2 tonight. And whilst my leg muscles to still ache and tighten I no longer feel I am on the borderline of a cardiac arrest. That said I am always ready to stop the running when the time is up!
What I have also noticed though is that I am well recovered before the end of the recovery (walking time). So tonight for example I was recovered (as far as I could tell) about 20s into the walk after the 3 min run and about 45s into the walk after the 5 min run.
Is this a sign that my fitness is improving? If so should I now be pushing the run part a little harder, or even reduce the recovery time a little: or do I just enjoy the recovery walk that I have, even though it feels like I don't need it all?
What have others done when this has happened?
