Running intervals 44:40  7.42 km (6:01 / km) +80m 5:43 / km
Day 1 of the OA Easter Challenge - a Beep Test.
I actually had 2 attempts (don't know if that's allowed but what the hey). Jogged down to the Hawthorn Hockey Club pitches to run on the astroturf, with Kyhil to watch and keep me honest. The quarters of the pitch are 22.85m so had to do some measuring.
The first attempt was terrible, 8.9, so I sat for a bit, walked for a bit, jogged for a bit and then had another go. It was better (10.1) but then I got 11.1 in high school so I would have expected to do much much better.
Either the astroturf was slippery and it made my turns slow, or I'm not very agile (true), or I'm just unfit (very possible). I have been running OK lately though so I'm surprised.
Also when I finished my Garmin said I needed 40 hours recovery which is quite a lot for a run without that much intensity really. I also felt garbage, so maybe I've just got a bit of a cold / I'm a bit off my game (or making excuses!)
