60r20 70%, 30r20

Two sessions today - as in the title - 60r20 70% returned the furthest meters on this session since the most recent come back and the 30r20 was also the strongest although with three minutes to go the handle did leave my hands momentarily..

Training and training 60r20 70% + 6by1 1r

This morning, although I turned the air con on in the gym I noticed about 25 minutes I was getting very hot, so I glanced at the settings on the air con and it had turned off! So just after 30 minutes I hopped off and turned it on again... Cost me but would have cost more to work through the warmth, you can see in the second half the splits reduce as the hr remained.

Then lunchtime another pop at the ctc 6 by 1min 1r all reps from a "standing start". First attempt I had to stop about 40 seconds in to get more vaseline on my butt... Shorts and seams and sweaty rows don't do my skin any favours... But after that it was a case of turning off the brain until the fifth rep when I needed to rein it in a little to ensure I'd get thru the final rep.

25 Million Meters in the bank. 60r20 70% & 4by2k OCD fail

Today I needed to cross 17,022m to get the 25 million meters, part of me wanted to do a 60min r24 TT to get it, another part was more sensible especially after a broken night of sleep with the baby lol. So this morning the regular 60r20 70% which was tough due to tiredness and then lunch 4by2k 3r aiming at 1:45.0 split.. I tried.

Still 25 million lifetime meters completed, bearing in mind just after I crossed 20 million in 2015 I ended up with a back operation not to be sniffed at.

Happy birthday to me 40-49h Irish record 4min

This morning I woke up with the headache I went to bed with last night and a little late into work meant only a 10k this morning. I'd spoked briefly with Q last night about the current Irish 40-49h 4min record and whether I'd be able to break it 1255m by Ally Cooper. Q said based on my recent 6by1min I should be able to but to settle on 1:36.0 and take it by a metre at the end. So after a expresso and headache tablet that's what I did. Not used to this only having done r20 work and 1 min intervals but as its my birthday I wasn't gonna stop :)

Three and a bit hour drive took its toll on my upper back so didn't quite finish the HM I tapped in at Dublin Hotel

Friday, 20 July 2018

and so it begins .. again

New job - new work gym - old (but good concept2) erg - older man - renew the mission

60r20 topping out at 80% HRR but a steady 75% HRR for the majority - slow and sweaty wins the race
