Intervals with Mansfield Woodhouse Pootlers run club. About 19 of us.

It was a pyramid session: 100m, 200, 300, 400, 400, 300, 200, 100. Did more than one and a half pyramids, it was a timed session for all abilities.

Set off fast with two front runners. Anthony and Shane. Shane fell behind and I followed Anthony to see the pattern, know the routine. On the second pyramid I pulled in front of Anthony and stayed there. Felt great to be fastest that night. Smiled all evening.

Stats include WU and WD.
