A Wet Warm Interval Club Session

It rained today, Its been coming for some and summer is no over in Wales.... Well I hope not, but it was nice to get some rain to freshen up the air. I thought it would cool the air for running tonight, but it seemed to be hotter than when the sun was out last week.

Todays club run was a interval training session, and it was:

9 x (2 minutes (Hard) 98% Max HR, 2 minutes (Recovery) 75% Max HR)

I do like this session as it gives you time to get a rhythm and you can work hard in each interval to stay at the max heart rate. After giving blood on Tuesday and the long run last night I was going to take it easy, I still worked hard but by the end of the session I knew I had more in the tank which I was happy about.

As you can see on the last set I worked that little bit harder, and during that session it was the furtherest I went. I'm not running with the club next week as im off on holiday, but I think I'll do this set again next week.

Right im off to pack.. Another rest day tomorrow as im driving down to Cornwall..
