After Mark909 shared some advice a few weeks back ( couchto5k.healthunlocked.co... ), I headed over to AudioFuel.co.uk and picked up their 'Power up 2012' Bundle pack for interval training. For £6.50, you can't go wrong really.
This morning was my first attempt at the 20min Interval session and it felt good. It was tough going as I reached the top of the pyramid and I had to have a walking break once I'd finished all 7 sprints but I really really enjoyed the whole Interval thing. It mixed things up and broke the rut I've been in; and it was good to have some commentary back on the audio after I broke up with Laura back in July.
In case you're interested, it's a 5 min warm up jog, 30 second sprint, 30 second recovery jog, 45 second sprint, 45 second jog, and likewise for 60 seconds & 75 seconds when you reach the top of the pyramid, then back down so 60 seconds, 45 seconds and finish on 30 seconds ending with a 5minute cool down.
It was a joy to do, sprinting felt good, the recovery runs felt better though Can't wait for next Tuesday when I get to do it again!
Anyone else do intervals?
