I just completed a really bad intervals session. It was supposed to be 4 x 3K reps @ 4:30/K, with 2.5 mins rest in between. Even in my 2nd rep I had to stop for a few seconds after 1K, and this pattern continued to the end. Feel quite a failure really! I regularly do speedwork, but today's (given by online coach), were rather longer reps at 3K, and I found them tough tough tough. The windy and cold conditions did not help. Does finisihing the reps count as a COMPLETED workout???
Would be interested to hear others comments on the need to stop whilst running, whether in training, or in races. Recently ran a hilly HM (1hr 43m), and although my time was not too bad (aged 45+ female), and I bettered my time from last year, I still needed to 'walk' around 3-4 times. That could have cost me at least 30s to 45s time.....WHAT TO DO WHEN THE URGE TO STOP ATTACKS???
