Thursday: Rate Ladders

Inspired by Sander’s L4 session, I decided to follow suit.  I was OK pushing this session beyond normal steady state HR caps, but I didn’t want to go nuts.

The session was

  • warmup
  • 5 x (4′ @ r18, 3′ @ r20, 2′ @ r22, 1′ @ r24)
  • brief (~1 minute) rests at the turn around points
  • cool down

Again, it looks like I am pushing pace too much at these low rates.  I should lighten up a bit, maybe 2 seconds slower on pace.
