After yesterday’s badass workout I was prepared to do a nice slow and steady 5k run tonight so as not to hit my leg muscles too hard, but then a friend reminded me that some local runners were meeting at the nearby park for some speed/intervals work so I went along to that instead.
BIG MISTAKE. We did a pyramid laps session, 1/2/3/4/5/4/3/2/1 laps round the approx 300m track with a minute rest in between each set of laps. Except I wussed out and only did 4 for that middle one — but that’s still a lot of laps! I’m not going to be able to walk in the morning. (Not helped by having eaten barely anything today, either.)
