Week 2 of 12 was difficult to schedule due to other commitments and travelling to Perth. In the end I needed to put the last two sets in on one day, which is within the letter of the program but I suspect not ideal.
- 45 minute recovery run
- 30 minute endurance run
- 3x 6 minute threshold intervals, with 2 minutes recovery
- 12km steady run
There’s not a lot to say about session one other than I chose to do it as an early morning beach run. I was early enough that there were no other foot prints on the sand and there was no wind so the water was still and silent.
I wore a heart rate monitor for the 30 minute endurance run but unfortunately I didn’t look at it until I finished the run and downloaded the results.I probably should have been going another 10 seconds per kilometer slower to keep in the endurance zone.
This weeks interval set was 3x6 minute threshold runs, I would like to have had a heart rate monitor for this set, but I was away from home so I just had to work from perceived effort. I ran it on the limestone trails in Manea Park on Saturday morning, there are some slight hills in there, with some shade and shelter from the wind.
The last set was 12km on the cycle path, steady pace in the afternoon on Saturday, followed by a short swim to cool down. It was meant to be 10km, but due to being in a rush to go out I read the wrong day from the program. Call it extra credit.
I weighed myself again on Tuesday and I was 67.4kg.
