I noticed stars throughout this exercise’s closing set, which isn’t an exaggeration. The difficult factor about 300m intervals, I discovered, is that you just go the identical tempo as 200m intervals, however then you need to hold on for an additional 100m to complete them.
An excellent monitor exercise the place you hit that anaerobic state feels cleaning afterward. I’m unsure if it is because you set out all the pieces you’ve in you or since you really feel extra alive than ever (on account of feeling extra ache than ever;), however it simply feels cleaning to me.

We completed with a couple of miles c/d and 12 miles complete.
