1:29.3

1:28.5


*Timer was at 8 seconds by the time I realised I'd started the workout - probably 1:29.5-1:30.5.


This route has a hill in, and is 200m out and back, with a couple of tight turns - far from track conditions. At best, I can manage 1:10-1:15 intervals on this route. This should have been 75-85% today, but in reality, it was more like 80-90%. The focus was on nasal breathing until 250-300m into each interval and as much controlled nasal breathing as possible during the rest.
