Today’s Interval Training (8-30-12)


Today’s Interval Training Statistics:

  • Cooper (12 min) 1.85 km
  • 1 km 6m:12s
  • 1 mile 10m:22s

Total Distance: 2.57 miles

Total Duration (with an approximately 5 minute warm-up walk and a 5 minute cool-down walk): 33m:35s

Today, I tried the “pyramid” interval session on the Endomondo Pro app for iPhone.  The high intensity intervals become longer and then shorter during the workout.

The training lasts for 22 minutes and breaks the intervals down like this:

  • 5 minutes of low intensity running
  • 30 seconds of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 45 seconds of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 1 minute of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 1 minute and 30 seconds of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 1 minute of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 45 seconds of high intensity running
  • 1 minute of low intensity running
  • 30 seconds of high intensity running
  • 5 minutes of low intensity running

This felt like a good workout, because my heart rate seemed to be rising more than it does during a normal, steady run for distance… But am I getting any faster?  I really don’t know. When I compare this workout to my run yesterday, my pace was definitely better during yesterday’s 5 mile run.  Maybe intervals just take time to make an impact on overall pace… I don’t know, but I’ll keep trying!
