Kjelsås course: Endurance and speed work

Maridalsvannet-view from Kjelsås
I decided to run a bit more than usual before I started my speed work. It makes sense to get a thorough warm-up before I start pushing my body hard. 1km wont do-I need a lot more than that. Tonight I ran just over 9 km before I started my speed work. I did 4 intervals. It's hard to say, but I truly felt I was more beneficial by securing a good warm up. Indeed my strength work has paid off. I'm able to keep a steady body-position throughout the entire interval. I'll keep the same approach when it comes to securing a good warm-up before pushing my body. That means at least 5km before starting quality-work. Tonight was good. Temperature was excellent. I managed to keep a steady pace at 5:30. Intervals went good also. I managed to push good. I've clear impression that my average pace is going down.
