Descending set ... wheeeeeeeee!

I've never done a set like this before. A simple track session: 1200m, 100m, 800m, 600m, 400m and 200m with a 200m float in between. The pace for each interval should be fast!

Hmm, sounds easy, but the devil is always in the application. I had some specific interval times for each distance but chucked these out and just ran 'flat out' as there was no real rhythm to be found in this set.

I covered the intervals in: 1200 (4.49), 1000 (3.56), 800 (3.08), 600 (2.20), 400 (1.27), 200 (0.40).

The longer intervals were slower than I would have liked and the shorter ones a bit faster than needed. Hard to pace them and found the 200m recovery barely enough, especially for the longer reps.

Overall a good run (in the dark at night again!) of 8.2km in 45.54mins.
