Spider, great session, every interval with rolling start faster than last average and managed to hit SPM target 4 times. I could have done Saturday's session at previous pace, but would not then have made yesterdays. Even slower LSD for me after yesterday's max PP effort (If 2S/500m isn't enough, tried 4!). While it didn't feel too bad, SPI down 5% showed the fatigue was there: Time Distnc Rate Split MaxHR % MinHR % 15:00 3,151 17 02:22.8 149 81.0% 094 51.1% 15:00 3,152 17 02:22.8 152 82.6% 144 78.3% 15:00 3,153 17 02:22.7 155 84.2% 148 80.4% 15:00 3,234 19 02:19.1 160 87.0% 152 82.6% 1:00126 ..read more

Stumpy nice -ve split on pace & rate! Iain a wise move to lower pace better to finnish a wout than start a series of HD`s Mat a 20spm wout for me today as well & got close to your pace but NOT a gentle wout for me - max power with rests!! 20x1minon/1off @ 20spm max power.

All part of the fun of the PP Iain overestimating your targets!! A regular occurence for me!! At almost 98% max HR in the last round you wern`t slacking!. Thanks for the wishes hoping I can still do some training thru the treatment. Statistics: Posted by spidermac — Sun Jul 14, 2024 10:52 am ..read more

... Good luck anyone this side of the pond knowing it ... Hi Plummy, I hope you are getting better every day. And resisting your metal mistress. I really did not have any hope that anyone (on either side of the pond) would know the song or even respond, give the almost total lack of participation in the thread recently. Rather than just posting "RIP", I decided the lyrics of this song were appropriate to the hope that things might pick up after the summer. "I'll be alone each and every night While you're away, don't forget to write Bye-bye, so long, farewell Bye-bye, so long See you in S ..read more

Mat, "SImple, gentle & >11SPI" are incompatible as far as I am concerned! Nicely done. Colin, nicely negatively split, no small feat when rate restricted! Does the "24 -1" mean R24 target but actually done at 23SPM? After yesterday's really hard fragmented session, decided to drop pace 2S/500m for today's LSD. Glad I did as nothing like as easy as should have been and I am now worried about tomorrow's PP session. Time Distnc Rate Split MaxHR % MinHR % 15:00 3,201 17 02:20.6 151 82.1% 086 46.7% - Uh oh, up to recent average HR from faster pace 15:00 3,200 17 02:20.6 159 86.4% 148 80.4 ..read more

I hope to go sub 2:05 for 5 x 1500 tomorrow despite today going less than swimmingly (see "what training" thread). I am paying for those 2 weeks off. Need to be realistic as last summer after having a week or 2 off my training went into a downward spiral and I ended up not restarting in earnest until Feb. Really sorry to hear your news Spider. I hope that they have caught it early. Statistics: Posted by Iain — Sat Jul 13, 2024 4:16 pm ..read more
