Trial run!

That was great - my back is now noticeably worse than it was before I started, but not actually painful, so we will consider that a win.  (I would say it's about 60-70% better - will be careful not to compound it with reinjury or overuse.)

10 minutes warmup, then 6 x 3min hard,* 1min recovery, then cooldown jog home

43min total (c. 4 miles)

*I took out my Garmin for the first time this week in a while, and it doesn't seem to be working properly - I think it's probably just at the end of its lifespan.  Have ordered a simpler Suunto monitor that I can use for HR zone training on runs and that is compatible with the system at the cycling studio.  Hopefully that will suit my needs - I don't really need the GPS as such, but if this one turns out to be too minimal I may replace the Garmin next year.

I hope that your back gets well soon.
I cannot run anymore without my Garmin. With it I can go where I want without following the usual well measured routes.
