I was looking forward to going along to the club last night for our weekly Fartlek session. I wanted to do one more faster run before easing off towards the Marathon de Ben Nevis which is less than two weeks away.
There were 6 of us running in our group. Hayley and Gemma were doing a different session so they shot off after the warm up. That left Ryan, Catherine, Norman, Jennifer and I to work together.
The session was 3 x [5mins (2min recovery), 3min (90secs), 2min (1min)]. I pushed the pace from the start and was happy with my effort throughout the run.
It was really good as we were all pushing each other to keep the pace high. Ryan and I were together most of the runs which kept us honest!
I could really feel my calves again as its the one session a week when I really drive off my toes!
I will be opening my latest ‘Guess My Time’ competition tonight so watch out for that!
