After the Wednesday session, I knew that I needed to dial it back a notch, so I decided to try one of the bread and butter endurance sessions from the plan.
- 2 x 30′
- Marathon Pace or Slower
- HR Limit: 75% of HRMax
A 75% of HR max cap is very low for me. That’s a HR of 140. I decided to use 80% of HRMax instead which is 148. I used 195W as my starting marathon pace. That pace did not last very long. Even with the higher HR limit, and in fact, blowing through that limit up to 84% of HRMax, I had to continually slow down.
Yep, The high end of the range is too high.
