Triathlon legends #3
It's been two years since then, it was my first ever interval training in any sport. I didn't even know what intervals were for and I learned the lesson pretty quickly. We were ment to do 4 times 1km at level 3 (85%max) with 2min rest and I started running behind him. I cracked sub 3.40 and he was a good ten seconds ahead of me. The difference was that then my times went up while him and the rest of the group was keeping a pretty steady pace.
A few weeks later I went behind him on a long 90min run, I finished; but then I was out of running for 2 days so I learned to stay away from him if I was to survive the first season in the sport.
Later we got to know each other and we are good training mates, and did the fundraising gig together. He beats me on every single run workout but I try not to let him have it lightly and that keeps me motivated enough on the run.
