Speedplay

Last nights fartlek session was a group affair, with 12 of us taking turns to decide the recovery, length and speed of each effort, as we put in 8 miles around the Ryton loop. It turned out to be an enjoyable but inevitably fast session as even the slower members of the group felt they had to up the pace significantly on their turn to lead.

To add a bit of spice only the person leading the effort knew its duration, and everyone else just had to hang on / follow, until they decided to slow to a jog.

Last nights efforts have again resulted in very tight hamstrings, although thankfully no adverse reaction from my knee.

Sounds like an interesting run. Kinda mix things up a little. Good thing the knees aren't acting up.
