I continue to introduce interval training and I'm already starting to notice results. There have been few training sessions, but I'm maintaining rhythms that used to be difficult. It's probably also a psychological factor, because once it's been proven that you can get there, you don't feel that need to stop because of exhaustion.

After the mini-fiasco of the previous Sunday that I finished totally without strength, on Monday it was time to do some gymnastics for a little more than an hour.
Tuesday was the day chosen for the long start, as Sunday was likely to be occupied by a short race of less than 6km (well, and a bachelor party...) So I started training at 22:30 for a "long" run, within what that schedule allows.
Training from less to more. After the obligatory warm-up, rhythms of 6:15 min/km going down to under 5:30 min/km at the end of the training, which ended in a climb and at 170 beats per minute. Good sensations after this training.
I rest on Wednesday and play the usual game on Thursday, and on Friday I propose new interval training with the following composition:

I decided to stop the cooling because of an overload on the posterior tibial, so I decided to finish one kilometer earlier and cool down by walking the rest of the training, and spend quite a bit of time stretching when I finished.
On Sunday I had planned to participate in a race. Short, less than 6km and with good slopes. Unfortunately I finished the week with my right leg a little bit loaded in the tibial area, and after trying it on first thing in the morning I decided not to run it. So I continued with the next event of the day, even more demanding... Does it count as "runner" training?
