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.

Interval session with Sheffield Vegan Runners.

A tough session with short sprints and short recovery! It rained and the wind blew, definitely added to the challenge. A great session with Fisher, Mikk, Helen, Karen and Caroline.

This was the first run out with a new running watch. Still learning its features and functions.
