Morning Run 30-20-10 intervals

in EXHAUSTlast year

I just finished a 6.012km running that lasted about 0hh:35mm:1ss !


I really need to get into getting up a bit earlier, but I still got out for a run before breakfast. It was already warming up. I went for these quick intervals. Legs felt sluggish to start with, but they warmed up a bit by the time I reached the cycle path where I could do the sprints.

Not too many runners out, but I was following a guy on the way to Stotfold. I did not quite catch him before he turned back and I went a bit further. As usual my pace was quite variable, but just mixing it up gets the heart working.

I had noticed recently that The Old Oak had lost an O, and now the other one has gone.

I took a gentle jog back home after the sprints, but stretched it out a little. My other half is trying the couch to 5k programme, I am not sure she will be keen to run with me though. We shall see. My kids have done some running too, but they are not really into it. Maybe I can persuade them all to come along to parkrun when it is going again.

Run free and stay well.

hi @steevc, ... until recently I had no idea on these times on 5k runs, etc. as the gyms are closed iv started running and more enjoyably cycling. So it seems the 6k run you are doing looks like a damn good time for my standards. I generally stop a few times to catch my breath TBH.

It's taken me a few years to get to this. I struggled to run for more than a few minutes when I started. Not running for most of my life didn't help. Just do what you can and try to enjoy it. It just may be a while before things like parkrun can happen again.

thx for showing me exhaust group. subbed. i run at least 1 per week // unfortunately i still have to buy myself a watch to track time.

Do you have a phone that can track your runs? That is what I did for years before I got a Garmin watch.

i actually TO GET AWAY from tech :D probably just buy a simple time tracking watch or specialized running watch

I like to listen to podcasts when I run. We each have our preferences.

Have a !BEER for your troubles!

That looks like a perfect place to jog so you can have a drink afterward.
Don't think the taste of the beer will be any different with that missing O 😁

It's a shame the pubs are still shut. Some have been serving takeaway beer though. I have been for a drink there with @adetorrent and @molometer. I think the sign was okay then.

Yep that's a nice little pub. Happy days. 👍😋

They just opened yesterday here in Spain. They were packed last night when I took my ride. People are sick of being home.

I just hope this does not create another wave of infections. Staying home is tough for people and businesses, but the risks are still there.

Stay well.

I had a appointment at the wound clinic today so I wasn't able to go out for a walk with my wife. She wanted to get one in before the weather got too hot. Nice job on your run!

It's a nice day here. Just been in the pool. Hope that leg is healing up.

Man, you are a runner
