The run started out fine. Well, actually I felt very energetic during the whole run in spite of the things that occured. If it hadn’t been for the two “incidents” it might have turn out to be a pretty good performance 😉
I did the 2k intervals on the streets of Alingsås. I took the round I’d like to call the round around Alingsås, because it goes around the centre of the city.
The first incident that occured was that I had to pay the woods a visit in my 90 secs of rest between 4th and 5th interval – nice and relaxing, right?
Second thing was that I had to push the lap button when it was a little more than 100 meters left of the last interval. The reason? I had so hard retchings I couldn’t go on running. I was an inch from throwing up on the street, but I didn’t luckily. Very annoying to be so close to the finish but unable to finish. Had it been a race I would have tried in spite of the retchings 😉 But I don’t know if it had been possible. It sure didn’t feel that way today 😀
I don’t know why I had the retchings really. During the last interval I had two slopes – one in the beginning and one in the end. The first one made me lose some pace, so on the second one I really pushed it just to get some back. But I actually didn’t feel like I had run totally out of energy when I had to stop. That’s what was so strange. But we have had some colds in the family the past days – maybe I have caught something. But then again, I don’t feel bad.. Don’t know really what to make out of it.
When I waddled home I practically heard my heartbeats in my head, which I usually don’t, so I must have been under stress in some way..
Day 3, sub 40 program – 3rd round
start with 5x2k R90 (3.55 to 4.00 per k)
|Lap||Distance||Time||AvgPace||AvgHR||MaxHR||HR aft. 90 sec||Note|
|4||1.99||7:49.54||3:56||175||184||139||Forest during rest|
|5||1.82||7:09.01||3:56||181||190||–||breaking due to retching|
Analyzing this 2k compared to the last one I can see that my heart rates are lower at higher speed this time which indicates some improvement. I like that 😉
