Early morning run in Copenhagen (3:35-3:40 min/km 1k intervals)

When I woke up with sandy eyes and heavy breathing at 6 a.m I didn’t think it as such a great idea to take the 1k intervals at such an early time. But I had no choice. They were going to happen today and since I am in Copenhagen for work and we have planned to work at the evening I had to do them before I went to work.

I went to the artificial lakes I ran my 1 hr by the day before and started…

After the first 1k interval I though I would never make 6 of them at 3:35 to 3:40 pace. But I persisted.. And it paid off. I managed to do all of them, however, I was very tired. But somehow I seemed to find the strength to keep it up.
