I was press for time and craving something with a bit more bite on Thursday morning.
So, I warmed up with 8 minutes of incline walking (15%, 5.5km/h). Then I did alternating 2 minutes at 12km/h and 1 minute at 6kmph with the incline at 3%. Sad to say that 12km/h on 3% grade is a pretty intense pace for a lumbering water buffalo like me.
My HR monitor began to misbehave in the middle of the session, but by all appearances, I was getting the right effect!
I did repeats until I had 5 minutes left and then I cooled down. As near as I can figure it, that’s makes this a 9 x 2′ / 1′ rest session.
This is my first time visiting the island of Cebu in the Philippines. I stayed at beautiful resort very near our facility here.
Now I am on my way back to Boston, on a 5 hour layover in Narita. I think I will go for a nice walk in a little while to pass the time.
Saturday morning will be a traditional post-travel L4 session on my erg at home.
