13/07/12 - Spin Session
Easy session back into it after the sniffles and chest, I'm wheezing a bit when I was upping the tempo, so didnt go all out in this session.
Simple and easy spinning session on the bike, and clocked in 10 miles.
Duration 00 45 00
Distance 10 Miles
14/07/12 - Sprint Interval Session
I was really looking forward to this session, I've really missed on working on my sprints. Since going over to my Ironman plan its all been endurance based, so it was great to change things up. The session was half mile sprint T5, half mile recovery T2. My aim was to complete the sprints in 3 minutes and under and the recovery was a slow jog / walk to get the heart rate back down before the sprint, so I would aim for a 6 minute recovery.
I went over the the 3 minute marker 3 times in the session, which I wasn't to happy about, but it was my first speed session for some time so I'll just take it forward to the next session and try and break the 3 minute marker.
In the half mile sprint I gave it my all and worked at a higher intensity than I have for some time, so I felt fatigued in a different way, but I noticed I recovered a lot quicker and got my heart rate down quicker too. I want to try and take on this to 20 sets (10 miles)
