I forgot, over the weekend, to look in the tiny running book to see what my next set of intervals look like. So I stuck with last week's intervals...4 minutes of slower jogging, 2 minutes of going faster, done in rounds until I have completed 30 minutes. I'm still counting seconds in my head and minutes on my fingers, so it's still pretty imprecise. But I check my cell phone to see when I'm at the half-point, time wise, so that I can turn around and today I was substantially further down the road at the half point than I have been up 'til now. So that was fun!
Taking a minute now to check to book so that I'll know for Wednesday's run...it will now be 3 minutes of slower jog, 3 minutes of faster run, in rounds. So that should be FIVE rounds if I count something close to correctly. Five rounds, just like it has been with the 4/2. Okay. That's simple enough.
I also feel a little bit less like the mighty stomping elephant. I mean...my steps are still pretty heavy and even on my faster parts, I am pretty slow compared to a lot of people...but I'm noting improvement both in lightness of step and in speed. And that rocks.
Yesterday I had hoped for a very, very long bike ride...but then it rained all day. So I rested all day. This morning, I woke up better rested than I have been in awhile. So I think that came out okay!
