Marathon Plan Week 1 Day 2

A more difficult training session –
same goals – reach target HR at the predetermined rating as quick as possible and keep it there.

It took a lot to get to the target HR, couldn’t do it within the first interval although it was pretty fast.

The rate 26/28 was quite hard to uphold – my training has been seriously lacking any high rating for such a long while it feels weird.

Format should have been:
4×15 mins with 4 mins rest
the 15 mins is split up into 6mins R26-28 and 9 mins R20-R22

I programmed 5 x15 not intentionally, but this may come into play on the esecond rotation.
I finished up with a 2k cool down

 

 

Back on the marathon plan

need to find a goal for my training, been slacking as of late.
Xmas, food and booze taking over.
I decided to redo the marathon plan to try and get some basis for a faster, fitter me.
I really would like to go BRIC or even and the crash-b this/next year in celebration of the half a hundred candles going to burn on the next birthday cake.

Training today was adapted from the Eddie Fletcher Marathon Plan:

3 x 30 minutes with 3 minutes rest between intervals

Heartrate cap = 148 limit for UT1

Rate cap = 20

Idea is to power doing R20 until the cap is hit then lower the power to keep within a few beats of the target.
