Week 15 - Regeneration Week
10/04/12 - Free Run (Treadmill)
A simple 75 minute run in T3/T4, my legs felt great after a few days off since the long ride on Saturday. The pace for the session was only at 08.57 minute mile pace, which is a bit slow, I know I can do 7 minute mile pace for a half marathon but should I be training harder and be working in T5 most of my sessions, the joys of training in T3/T4 is that I'm not to tired to train the following day. I'm trying to follow my plan to the letter, so fingers crossed come race day I'm in perfect shape and get the best time possible.
I tried my hardest to keep in the T3 zone for the run, but for the last 10 minutes, I went off piste and pushed myself and tipped into T4. It was a good feeling knowing I've got power left in the tank after an hours run, just hope the power is there after 50 minutes of swimming and 3 hours of biking.

11/04/12 - Interval Cycling (Spin Bike)
1 hour of interval cycling, 10 minutes standing out the saddle, 10 minutes recovery peddling in the saddle. This is a great quick workout that gets the heart rate high and the sweat running down your face.

12/04/12 - Free Ride (Spin Bike)
The same set as yesterday, 10 miuntes on, 10 minutes off, just as hard just as sweaty. If anything was different to yesterdays session, it was a took it slightly easier, as I felt a little fatigued. I feel more tired this week, and its been a recovery week, than I did when I did 8 hours last week. How strange!
