Interval training

Another snowy day. I risked the roads to go to my usual running spot, lucky they were dry. It wasn't too cold but snow was still on the ground.
My training has 1 interval run every second week. All are meant to be carried out at 5k pace. I usually run anywhere between 7-8 minute miles, a bit faster than my 5k pace. The other weeks usually have a tempo run on Wednesdays. I feel like these have made a huge contribution to my running in a short space of time.
I ran a 1 mile warmup, then 8 x .25 mile intervals with a minutes walk/jog in between, followed by a 1 mile cool down.
Altogether that was 5 miles.
