Continuing the slow burn. Another lazy man’s L4. Almost identical to last Friday’s crawl.
Today. I worked on hitting my rates more precisely, and I did (within the accuracy of the PM2). I was consistently 3 watts ahead on power. My HR was totally in control and my lactates were fine at 60 minutes. I pushed the last 20 minutes a bit harder (as the stroke counts suggest) and I had some fun with the last 4 minutes trying to hold 20 watts above the target, that’s why my HR went up a bit at the end.
Next time, I think I will boost the stroke count by a few. I’d prefer to have a bit more yellow in the picture.
Tomorrow: I am scheduled for 30 minute threshold. I think I might substitute another 10K push, starting a couple seconds slower. That last one left a very bad taste in my mouth.
