I wanted to do a final Fartlek session but I didn’t really want to push as hard as normal. Katrina’s running buddy Tracey has started coming on a Monday so I thought if I ran with Tracey then it would hopefully help her and also help me. A win win situation!
Ryan was the only other runner who could make it so it worked out well. The session we decided on was 5 x [4mins (2mins recovery), 2mins (1min)].
I was interested to see what my HR would be like running at nearer 7min per mile rather than 6min per mile. Here are our stats for the session.
My HR is normally around 148-150 for these sessions so I was pleased with the run. Tracey worked hard and I was impressed that she was able to pick up the pace for the final set after slowing a bit on the 4th set.
