Ebba and I met at the gym after work today. We were both a little bit tired after our long runs yesterday. But we convinced ourselves that if we just get started with the workout, we would feel much stronger!
It is quite cool that you can complete a work out of intervals in so many ways. Different lengths and recovery times bring different benefits. I have to admit that I sometimes feel it is hard to choose which one I will go for. However, last week my friend Andrea, who I work with at Espresso House, introduced me to a really nice combined workout. I told Ebba about it and she was inspired and suggested me to take the lead of today’s training.
A GREAT COMBINED INTERVAL TRAINING
We started to run five one-minute intervals with 30-second breaks in between the intervals. We had a low pace in the beginning at 14 km/hour, and then successively increased a little bit for each interval. Part two of the training was ten 30-second intervals with 30-second breaks in between. We had the same strategy here, successively increasing the pace. With this setup, we ran our last interval at 16.5 km/h.
Even though I was exhausted after the work out, we completed a few Kayla exercises, with focus on core and abs 😉
I really recommend this workout, give it a try! 🙂
