Day 23: Increasing Intervals

A week ago I went over my interval running schedule. Up until now I have been doing intervals of 1 on the treadmill:

5 — 6 — 7 — 8

My eventual goal is to get to 1.5 intervals on the treadmill:

5 — 6.5 — 8 — 9.5

I was starting to get pretty comfortable with intervals of 1, so today I increased my intervals to 1.1 starting with the same base of 5:

5 — 6.1 — 7.2 — 8.3

1-31-2012

The distance was hardly much more than the intervals of 1 (2.17 vs 2.12), but I felt like I was being pushed harder. Gradual increases is how you can get to your goal. Once I get comfortable with 1.1 intervals, I’ll bump it up to 1.2, etc, etc, until I reach my goal of 1.5 intervals.
