Ooof. Hard work.
I hit the fitness center at 6am on the dot. My legs and back are still sore from the weights, but loosened up during my warmup.
- 20 minute warmup with 3 – 2 minute chunks at 5:30 pace
- 4 x 10′ (2.5% grade, 5:30/km pace)
- 5′ recoveries (2.5% grade, 12:00/km pace)
I made it through the first two intervals at my target pace, but I needed to to dig really deep to finish the second one. I gave myself a break and took the pace down to 6:00/km for the last two intervals. This took just enough of the edge off so I could complete the workout. HR monitor started to act up again in the last two intervals.
I’m really tired now.
Tonight I fly out around 5pm. I am flying through Dallas and get home to Boston at 11pm Boston time. I can’t wait to get home.
