No Recoveries - Interval Training

Its my last hard club run before my half marathon (endurance Life) so I wanted to give this everything and the tri coach told me that my recovery periods in this session had to be at 10km race pace, and the the intense periods had to be at 5km race pace.... i knew my lungs were going to hurt after this session.

The set was: 10 x 2min 95% 1 min 90%

I was averaging over a quarter of a mile for each 2 minute speed interval and I did work hard I felt it in my legs and lungs after the session. I kept my heart rate over 175 beats per minute and these sessions I tend not to go over 166 beats per minute but I wanted to work hard in this one at the stats dont lie.
