I had an 8am meeting at work today, so not enough time to do an OTW session. I decided to do a short recovery session at the fitness center at work.
I discovered that the erg at work is still non-functional. You can pull the handle. The fan still spins smooth as silk, but the PM5 is blissfully unaware that that fan is spinning.
So, a rational person would have stood up, walked over to the elliptical trainer and worked out. I, however, am not a rational person. I decided to do a recovery session.
- 40 minutes (I decided to add on 4 more minutes while I was working out)
- Stroke rate 18 (by counting strokes per minute)
- Heart rate cap at 150. Adjust stroke pressure to stay at cap.
Well, it all worked out just fine. I had a lovely time and around the 30 minute mark, I decided to add 4 minutes at 20spm at the end with no HR cap.
Tonight I’m driving down to the cape.
Tomorrow: L2 – 4x2k / 5′ rest. This will be an adventure. I’m going to do it in my Maas. So the pace will be slow, and the intervals will be long.
