Korea Day 2 – Another modified Marathon Plan session

Today’s workout was planned as:

M2 3 x 20′ / 2′ MP, 10KP, HMP 90.0% (167)

No rowing machine, so I used an elliptical trainer.

I usually do endurance stuff on an elliptical at a resistance of 15 (on a 1 to 25 scale), so I decided I would try doing the first 20′ at 15, then move it up to 19 for the 10kp, and back to 17 for the hmp.

I would watch HR and if it looked like I was way off track, I’d adjust.  it turned ut I didn’t need to.  The settings worked out great.



Compare this to the same session on the erg.

Just a little bit lower intensity today, but it didn’t feel like it!  Man it was humid again.  The sweat was flowing freely.  While I was waiting for the elevator back to my room, a lady walked over to the elevators, took one look at me dripping in front of the elevator doors, and turned and walked away!

Tomorrow:  Easy session.  Probably 2×30/2′

I catch a plane tomorrow afternoon.  I’m very eager to get back home again.  This was a short trip, but I’m kind of worn out.
