Ok that's good to know - I'll try to keep Monday as a rest day. This week I ended up going to the gym on Monday (because it didn't happen over the weekend) and could still feel the squats today.
Anyway, it was a good session. Did all 3 at the same pace as last week's 400's i.e. 4'10" per km. It felt pretty good. Legs know they've had a workout but it didn't feel too hard at the time. The heart rate was low 160s immediately after each interval (169 after the 3rd interval) but was always back below 120 within a minute.
There are tracks dotted about Melbourne, but for Tuesdays it's about finding one I can get to in my lunch break, and that's harder. The trail with 250m markings is the best option in central Melbourne I think. I like the treadmill to control the pace (not sure if I'd be able to set a good pace on my own at the moment) but when it's a warm sunny day like it was today you don't want to be indoors
I know it's early days but any feedback on how I'm going? Will we do tests every so often to measure any improvement? I'm curious..
Thanks for the link - so is that a photo of the full gaggle!? And I thought everyone here was from the US...
