On Monday, I was up early and over at the Twin Lakes
business park. The park contains a nice long fairly straight hill with a
gradually climb. I have used the same hill in the past for shorter intervals.
This would be the first 2 minute interval workout.
I like running in this park because they have nice wide
roads. I can do my workout and pretty much do not have to concern myself with
traffic issues. Running to the business park covers about
3 miles if I take the direct route, or I can make a few detours and make it closer
to six miles before arriving. This is what I did on Monday.
Even thou, I ran 24 miles on Sunday; I still felt like I had
plenty of pop in my legs. At least through the majority of the intervals, my
legs did start to feel it by the last couple of intervals.
Because I set a max mileage for each day, if I reach this
set total before reaching my driveway, I make myself walk the reminder back to my house. Monday, I finished
my mileage early and had to walk the last ½ mile back to my house. To be
honest, I find that I like do this more and more. The walking gives my body a
chance to return to normal and it helps flush off the lactic acid that would
otherwise, just be setting in my legs. The result is that I feel so much better
a few hours later.
