Tuesday: May CTC

I had a meeting at 8am, so no time for OTW or even a workout before work.  I had a hole in my schedule around lunchtime, so I ducked into the gym to take a crack at the May CTC.

Being simple minded, I decided to just use 1 minute rests, and target faster than 1:45 for the long intervals and 1:40 for the short intervals.

I was doing the session on slides.

First up was a fletcher warmup.

Then into the main event.  I felt a little panicky after the first rep, but then settled into a reasonable groove.  I was disappointed to see the wahoo tickr having the same problem with tracking my HR in the later reps.  I has happy that I survived the session.  It was very hard.

So, 13:40.8, an average pace of 1:42.6.  The pace for the long intervals was 1:43.6.  The pace for the short intervals was 1:38.9, so I beat my totally arbitrary targets. (and I felt good about that)

I think in peak form, I could probably maybe do this at 1:40, but for where I am right now, I am pretty pleased.

Tomorrow:  OTW, Steady state.  Probably rate ladders again.
