- first 5′ at 165W, 5′ @ 170W, 5′ @ 175, 15′ @ 180W
Did not go to plan. Very heavy legs from the morning session. HR rose precipitiously as soon as I went to 175W. Retreated back to 170W for the last 15 minutes. Despite the very low power and HR right at 70% HRR, lactate reading at the end was 2.8mmol/l
Still no air movement and very humid in the gym. I sweated up a storm, but I think the main issue was just fatigue from the morning. So, an even slower start and a lower end power.
30:00.0, 18 spm, 7085m, 170.7W
Tomorrow morning: 4 x 500m at race pace.

Interesting, personally I always make sure the aerobic session is the first workout I do that day so the days when I do second sessions are the ones where I am either doing weights or HIIT sessions where raising lactate is beneficial!

My thought was to do the second session at a low enough intensity to help facilitate recovery from the first session. I don’t know if that’s sound logic or not. It’s also the way that fits in my schedule best. I have a big time block in the morning and a short one at the end of the work day.
