Latest Run (Week 4, Day 1)

Loved today's run. Weather was nice (if not a bit hot). I went back to my original training plan. And I enjoyed it!

First, here's the new program that I'll be following this week: 3 sets of 6 minute runs, followed by 4 minute walks. It's a minor tweak from last week, which is to run longer by 1 minute on each set.

Second, a self analysis: in what is becoming a usual trend that I'm observing, I started out feeling lethargic so I ran at a slower clip on the first interval. I'm not sure where it turned around, but I started enjoying the run gradually. By the time the final interval came about, I was confident I can run at a faster clip. The result: I had my fastest interval yet in these past 4 weeks!

Here are my running times (*** Denotes Personal Best):

Interval6-Minute Jog (min/mi)4-Minute Walk (min/mi)
Warmup21:30
113:1919:51
212:4119:53
311:23***19:30
Cooldown20:13

One other thing I did, I tried running at a wider stride on the last interval. Perhaps it helped improve the time. I will try this again on my next run and see how it goes.

Thanks for reading. I hope this inspires you to make your own fitness journal.

Running Journal Overview: This is a run series journal that I aim to update regularly. My objective for posting is to give myself a check and hopefully implant the discipline of being consistent with my fitness plan into my system. I invite everyone who comes across this journal to also adopt a healthier lifestyle and be more active and fit. Your fitness goals may not be the same as mine, but let's try to achieve our goals together.
