Fartlec Training
Warm up over the first 1km, then 30 seconds sprint, followed by 4 mins recovery, repeat 4 times. Warm down.

The expected training for this week was 07:00 hours – but I am expecting to go quite a bit over this as I have a mountain biking trip to Wales leaving on Friday afternoon allowing for two decent biking days in the hills and some very tired legs…. Must remember to take the camera!

This week sees the entry of some speed training into the running again – so a few sprints to scare the pigeons on the way to work. I look forward to the faces of all the people in the market I often run through sedately as I start to sprint! I’m gonna look like such a prat….
