Thursday was a “rest day”. Up at 5am to fly home. Driving home from the airport sucked, nearly 2 hours in traffic.
I decided a good night sleep was needed and made the call to work from home. That made my morning a lot easier. I woke up at 8:30, had breakfast and was in a meeting at 9.
I worked until around 3:30 and then decided it was time for some training.
- 4 x 20′ / 1′ rests
- L4 format
- Start slow, then push it a little harder than last weekend
- 10W per stroke
Having a little issue with the interval editor, so no details on each 10 minute segment.
Lactate test at the end, after 80 minutes, 2.0mmol/l – right on the nose.
One other note. It was nice and cold. 57F when I finished.
I think the key thing that I noticed is that my HR was following the power very closely. I think that is the key for me, if I start to see more decoupling between HR and power, then I am pushing the session too hard.
By the way, I had a blast with the stroke sequence today.
