After saying I never do speed intervals, I actually did some last night. I meet up with a friend a Princes Park – god knows I’d have never made it otherwise. It was freezing. We did 3 X 1 km bursts, not all that fast but fast enough. Tomorrow we’re meeting up at lunch time for a run from work along Dandenong creek. Pity I can’t take a long, long lunch or I could do some City to Surf training up Mt Dandenong.
Oh and I found a good way to occupy my commuting time on the way home – looking up running routes in the Melways. This morning I planned a trip to the gym before work but decided halfway to have a rest day instead. I decided against getting changed out of my workout gear in the car – the top would have been okay (I had on a singlet) but the trousers would have been challenging. I’ve also discovered leaving work at 4.30 is far superior to leaving at 5.00 so I think some early mornings are on the cards for next week – which means getting up even earlier to get in a run. Sounds like I have at least another week’s work which rules.
