My first intervals

I decided to give this interval thing a whirl this evening.  Kept it simple by alternating slow and less slow minutes.  Can’t say I managed huge variations in pace, but it’s a start.

I’ve also booked myself on a running workshop in mid-March.  It’s on a Saturday, but doesn’t start until half ten, so I should be able to fit in a parkrun beforehand.  Not that I’ve become a parkrun addict, you understand.  Not at all.  If I were a parkrun addict, then I’d be planning to do the Finsbury Park parkrun this Saturday before the post-Janathon 5k.  And that would be pure madness.  So why am I checking for weekend engineering routes and planning my routes….?

My name is Abradypus and I’m a parkrunaholic.

    Sounds like you are hooked to running and park running, dont think there is a cure! Running workshop sounds interesting, saw one advertised for women only where they served cava and cupcakes was considering going along for refreshments and then sloping off or is that slobbing off!

    The parkrun gets a bit addictive doesn’t it! I have done it about 12 times now. Well done on the interval session – if you do it regularly then it won’t take long to see some improvements (so I have been told).
