Fifth week in a row of interval workouts, and each time my average lap time has been lower than the previous week. Either I'm learning to dig deeper or I'm genuinely getting more fit each week - I guess it doesn't matter which as long as it translates into better race times. Averaged 3:02 per 800 meters today (5 weeks ago I was running 3:13). I have no excuse not to continue to do them each week since they're yielding great results but man, do they hurt!

    About 2 dozen factors conspiring to make you faster after these workouts. Good going Tex.

    Just keep doing them. Unless of course you have injury pain.

    Nice job, Dan. Just a few more months and you'll be averaging 1:55 on these! = )

    Thanks guys. I'll be happy with 2:55! Maybe I should go to Snowbird and get me some more red blood cells.

    That's great! One thing to remember is you can't do intervals for too long without a break in your training cycle.

    Thanks Mike, good reminder. Next week is recovery. I've only been running 3 days/wk lately so I think I'm OK, but I am overdue some rest.
