Thankfully last night we were able to get back onto the cycle track for our Kilbarchan club Fartlek session. There were a good group of us including Leanne H. It was good to see her back.
The session was 3 x [3min (90sec recovery), 6min (2min)] then 3 x 1min (30sec)
The fastest in the group was Ewan C so I spent the session chasing him once he had gone past me. Normally Leanne would be ahead of me but as she is just getting back I had the novelty of going past her! It won’t last long so I was making the most of it.
I’m always keen to get as close to 5miles for the 30mins on hard running and I was pretty close this week ….
I like to wear my HR strap for these sessions as they give me a pretty pattern on the graph but also show me how hard I was working.
If my max HR is around 170 which I think it is then an average HR of 149 means I was running at 87% of my maximum. I reckon that’s a good effort in anyones book!
The 30sec recoveries at the end after the 1min efforts wasn’t enough to really recover but I think that’s the idea!
The key thing in this table is that we are above Giffnock North !!!
