10 Days

I decided to leave it ten days to recover from my ‘flu; with over 130 days before specific prep begins I decided that a cautious approach was the only course to take. Still in a cautious state of mind, I climbed aboard my trustee trainer and did a not too difficult set – not easy, but not like the killer sets I’ve been doing this winter.

10 min w/u – build HR to 145
3 x (30 seconds max 30 seconds easy)
10 min HIM effort (162 HR)
2 min Easy
4 min Hard (172 HR)
2 min Easy
10 min HIM effort (162 HR)
2 min Easy
5 x (40 seconds Max, 20 seconds Easy)
2 min w/d

It’s a good set and can be used to measure decoupling if I get a Power meter next year. One could measure power/HR on the first and last 10 min – ideally there should not be too much. I will also do 3×4 min hard efforts next time, bringing the set to over an hour.
