Monday, June 17 – No Training
I was down on the Cape this weekend and stayed over Sunday night. I left for work at 5am on Monday morning and arrived around 8. Just enough time for a quick shower and into a busy day of meetings.
Tuesday, June 18 – 10K push
I was up late on Monday night, and ended up sleeping in on Tuesday morning. At the end of the day, I ducked into the fitness center for a quick workout. I wanted a bit of intensity, but didn’t have the oomph for a really hard session, so I did a 10K push. I was doing pretty well, but I had a bit of a blip near the end.

I wore my Humon for the session to see what this kind of session looks like.
Wednesday, June 19 – 3 x 20’/2′ L4 on slides
I worked from home on Wednesday so I could take my wife to a doctor’s appointment. In the evening, I had a time window to go get a workout, so I strapped on my Humon and went off to do a 3 x 20′ L4.
To satisfy the Humon, I started with a pick drill and slowly increased the pace to get to target around 4 minutes in. I think it’s one of the more interesting things to experiment with is measuring the effectiveness of different warmups.
After my workout, I had dinner, packed my bags and headed out to the airport to catch a 1:50AM departure to Hong Kong.
Thursday, June 20 – Rest Day
This day basically didn’t exist. I flew out at 1:50AM, thursday morning and arrived in Hong Kong 5:10am Friday morning.
Friday, June 21 – Rest Day
No time for training. I went from the airport in Hong Kong to the hotel in Shenzhen by car, took a shower, changed, and then went to an internal meeting. Then we headed out to an 11am meeting with our customer. After that, a customer lunch. From there, I headed to the airport and flew to Shanghai, arriving in the evening. I was dead tired and went straight to bed.
Saturday, June 22 – 3 x 20’/2′ Sort of an L4
I was staying at the Kerry in Shanghai, which has 2 ergs. The one I hopped on for this session had a maximum drag of about 75, and if I hit the catch with too much aggressiveness, it would slip a cog. Combine that with jet lag and you end up with a pretty shitty session.
