Re: Heart Rate Training and Bands

Lunch break task is to reread the instructions as to what to do about targets as I move through cycles..... I know what I did, increase pace to keep hr at same level, but was that correct based on the instructions? I've been leafing through the plan document, and it doesn't explicitly say anything ...

https://log.concept2.com/challenges/dog-days - I shall duck if necessary. Double double is taking longer for the grey cells to cotton on to.

Does look a reasonable session. May try this evening for testing purposes.

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Didn't plan my morning well (i.e. didn't want to get out of bed) so switched from my planned fletcher workout to a straight hour. I partly wanted to log a reasonable hour for the lightweight monthly challenge, bu I also wanted to see if even a couple of weeks of heart rate training had to be anythin...

After a couple of long steady state rows: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190709/9ad4dd00e8382ded570c7917c706ec77.jpg Wasn't sure what to expect from this given the last run through this piece (now with slightly longer 5k elements).

Re: Heart Rate Training and Bands

A quite atrocious 6:9 minute session this morning. Couldn't hold rate or stick within heart rate cap whatsoever! Could be a hangover from the CTC plus circuits yesterday, so I'll chalk that up to experience.

And my pm5 crashed and lost the verified log [emoji34]

Thanks Greg - I appreciate your explanation greatly!

I typically do 5 minutes row at low intensity as a warm up, but will try your suggestion.

Thanks again.

Impressive start but no wonder you found it hard. 4x15m @5k pace! You only had to alternate 6m @5k pace and 9m @marathon pace [emoji38]. I realise 5k pace on the programme is a training pace not a SB pace but still, that is a mighty challenge. [emoji15][emoji15] Read once. Think. Read again. I had ...
