This was my first Fartlek session for a few weeks. Infact Monday 16th December was the last one. My hamstring was a bit sore after that one so I took it easy leading up to the Hardmoors 30 race.
My hamstring has been fine since but I’m a little wary that if I push it too hard it could easily go again and set me back for a week or two. With that in mind I decided to do the session tonight but stay with Katrina. That way I would have a decent run without going too hard.
I posted on twitter my plan to try and run sensibly to which Dave replied,
Run sensibly? We both know that’s never going to happen in a fartlek session 🙂
But I did!! The session was 3mins 20secs (90secs recovery) and 1min 40secs (2mins) x 6. I stayed with Katrina for the whole session which means she worked a bit harder!! With 12 weeks to go to her Manchester Marathon these sessions are important to her. The only downside is her groin is a bit sore so we’ll need to be careful with how much speed work she does.
So a good session back at the club.
