I hate the heat too JonT. Impressed Mr Bee keeping up the PP intervals in this weather. Too hot for intervals for me today so took the easy way out - 30minR20.

Odd one for me today. I did a RowAlong “recovery” row which was 35mins @ 2k+18. I normally use HR zones for recovery rows and stay on UT2. This one took me deep into UT2 and was probably +2 or 3 higher than my normal recovery pace. I certainly felt less recovered at the end of it. Any thoughts?

Don`t think u are in UT2 at 86%HR JonT, may explain why it felt harder than normal. I have changed my easier rows to hold a constant pace rather than go off HR ( a la Travis) as I find my HR (& hence pace if I use it to determine the wout) vary quite a lot with conditions: heat. humidity etc
Another 30minuter for me today but wanted to do something different.

Similarly, I've given up on trying to hold a specific pace for recovery rows - too much environmental influence on what that should be. Over the weekend, recovery was way over the 2k+25 and that was just fine for me.

Today was PP WK 2.1. Previous round was averaging 1.54, and to be honest I've not read into how to pace subsequent rounds. My feeling was to knock a second or so off the pace for each rep and see how that felt (it's not like I'm a speed demon Image ).

As it was, with the cooler weather and feeling quite rested, the targets were reasonably comfortable. Nice return to level HR in the rest periods and it didn't require over exertion...... Next round however ImageImageImage

Bit more straightforward today - target of 2.04 from last time....

Felt ok with continuing cooler weather, but holding the pace proved challenging: not so much that it was tough physically but it was a conscious focus to not drift (the stats don't lie - damn them).

Plus side, after one thing and another, I'm only a smidge adrift of being LWT again.....
