Sorry to get so techy but it is fascinating! Mike and I have very similar schedules it seems. Running-wise I do one tempo run or a race, one structured interval session, one long run and either some fartlek or hills in the middle of a steady run. If I wasn't injured I was going to play with adding a 5k tempo effort at the end of my long run before the next race. I do the HIIT stuff in my core/conditioning sessions -30 seconds of squat thrusts -OMG! If I want to get up to 90% effort with the cv training then I do it on my bike. I find it impossible to get to that level of effort when running.

When you get used to it you'll have to do it twice :wink: :lol:
You're doing loads of good stuff -def keep us posted.
