Damn leg took a good three days to settle down after a very, very painful post-run Monday. Today was pain free. So I went for a run tonight.
My evening to get the girls settled, so my only option for a run was laps around the local oval. Luckily it’s winter and soccer training is on, so most nights the lights are on. I decided my best option was a quick batch of intervals. I have been reading some running sites recently and there are so many different options for running intervals. I went with the pyramid intervals option.
It was actually kind of fun. Started with a two lap warm up, then did intervals of 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 400m, 200m, 100m. With 100m walk between each. All distances were approximate as I just measured it based on the oval being 400m and the lights around the oval being close enough to 100m apart each.
I’m not going to break any records, but I got them done. My calf gave a bit of a twitch towards the end and I’m icing it as I write, but nothing too bad. Think I need to avoid hills for a while to let it recover properly.
