Listening to one of my favourite running podcasts… ok, the only running podcast I listen to – MarathonTalk – I thought that I ought to introduce some interval training into my running.
The basic principle being to run faster than you normally would for a defined, short period… allow some recovery time and a quick choc-ice…
…before doing the whole thing again. Repeat until knackered, or three times whichever comes first.
This may not be exactly how it was presented on the podcast but it’s how i remember it and I feel it may be useful to my readership.
Today’s run: 2 miles
Chocolates = zero (get in there! Not even a choc-ice really,, we didn’t have any… but I would have!)
Press ups = zero (done something ?serious to my stomach muscles playing tennis yesterday, thought wise to rest it – can still run as badly as I did before though)
Weight = 96.1 (at last, moving in the right direction again)
Just for nostalgia, the last film I went to see at the cinema where there was actually an interval was ‘Titanic’ at the Alexandra Theatre in Newton Abbot approximately 80 years ago. Has anyone experienced overpriced choc-ices more recently than that?
