Day 2 went better. I still struggled but I didn't have to hit pause at all (had to once on Monday) and I ran for the full 2 minutes for all of the intervals. It was not easy, but it was better.

Thanks for the help. I had no idea there'd be so much learning involved in this!

next time that happens, just walk a longer interval until you have recovered sufficiently, then you can continue on. I've done that in plenty of races and had to stop and walk to recover. Rest of the race goes fine then.

I made the mistake of going out on my first interval at the same speed I did last week for 1 minute. And yeah, after that I slowed down significantly, but I think the damage was done. I should've learned from the week before to start with a much slower first interval and if that's easy, speed up. But no, I had to try to go faster.

Tomorrow? Slower first interval and if I can, work up to faster.

Good for you for just shortening the intervals. That's ok. Have you tried slowing down your pace so you aren't sucking so much wind?

It was a bit of a struggle today, but I think I tried changing too many things at once. First, in addition to my swim yesterday, I also added a 1.5 hour yoga class. It was great, but at the same time, my hamstrings paid a bit of a price - they were sore and stiff today. I figured a decent warmup would work that out and I'd be fine.

I also moved my workout from after work to lunchtime and I'm thinking that my morning nutrition isn't quite right for this training.

I got winded pretty quickly and struggled through the first 2 minute run. My left calf had some pulling in it that I haven't experienced before so I assume it was a result of the tight hamstrings. It dragged me down quite a bit and I ended up running for 1.5 minutes for the other intervals rather than 2, but I completed the workout. I was drenched and spent a lot of time sucking wind, but I finished it.
