In Leksand with the fam at Kristina's parents house for Swedish Midsommar silliness. We went into town today and parked by a big playground for Lukas and M and K while I went for a run.
Ran from the there up to the clubhouse and then went out for six turorientering controls. I was wearing regular running gear (shorts) so I had wanted to stay mostly on trails but much of the terrain was very easily runnable in shorts, much to my delight, so that was fun. Except for one bit, one bit was green and nasty and I should have gone around. Oh well.

Intervals with the club on the gravel at Myrerjordet. First time joining at this location and probably my last NSK workout for ... a long time. [cue tears]
8x[2' hard + 1' easy]
Start together and run two minutes, then start from your ending place and run back for the next interval. This means almost everyone converges every other interval, which would make it social except for the fact that everyone is just wheezing and breathing too hard to talk.
Felt good to run hard but I felt like I only had four gears. Not really surprising given my lack of speed training recently. I had Ida behind me for all the odds and then in front as a rabbit on the evens, though it seemed like I never got any closer to her. Either I struggled more on the evens or she was sandbagging a bit on the odds...
Had I done a little math and realized how short this workout was going to be I would have been a little more motivated to run instead of bike. Oh well, happy to have run some intervals!
