Today was the first time on the training program for speed work intervals. It was a very quick 8x30/30. That means 8 intervals of 30 seconds running as fast as you can, followed by 30 seconds of recovery (slow jog or walk). So after about a half mile warm-up, I did the intervals on a short dirt track on the edge of my subdivision. It was interesting. Even though overall I was only running (including warm up and cool down) for about 15 minutes, it felt like a much longer run, which I guess is what it's supposed to be like. My fast intervals were between 5:30 and 6:15 and stayed fairly consistent from beginning to end, which is what we were supposed to be aiming for, so it will be interesting to watch this as we continued to do more of these type runs each week.
