Sunday: Rest day
Weather: It doesn’t matter 😦
- 4×20′ / 1′ rest
- slow start 5′ @ 2:15, 5′ @ 2:10, then 2:03 the rest of the way
- rate: 19-21 (on slides)
- lactate test at 60 minutes
Nothing unusual in the HR chart. I increased speed by about half a second for the last 20 minutes to see if I could hold the higher power without my HR running away.
In the first interval, you can see the steps at 2:15 and 2:10, then the rise after the step to 2:03. I was actually pulling around 2:02.7. Then for the last 20 minutes, I pushed to 2:02.
So, this is the third lactate in a row at or below 1.6mmol/l for a power between 185 and 190. I’m going to target 2:02 (193W) for a few workouts to see how that goes.
Tomorrow: I will be starting a series of assessments to get a baseline before starting my winter training plan.
