Wednesday PM: 4 x 20′ / 1′ rest

Tuesday night I was so tired I could barely get up off the couch and go to bed.  When the alarm went off at 5:15AM on Wednesday morning, I still felt half dead.  I turned off the alarm and slept another 2 and half hours.  So, no time for a morning session, but I think this was a much better choice.  I think that I am still adjusting to the higher volume (>100km a week for the past 3 weeks).

I finished up around 5pm and headed off to the gym for a session in the afternoon.

Plan: Standard 4 x 20′ / 1′ rest at 190W, with a slow start and lactate test at 60′

It felt hard, and my HR was high, but lactates were A-OK at 60′ –>  1.7mmol/l

I needed to stop to fiddle with my ipod in the last 20′ segment and pushed the pace a little bit to try to recover some of the lost meters.  I also let my rate creep up a bit more just to see how it felt.
