Good work you two, it will all come good with this attitude.
I did an Alter G session this morning - rolling hills for an hour, quite fun, then I did a solo Speedflex on theay home - awesome, so relaxing. I had my own series of circuits to do, sometimes with extra jumpy abouty stuff between machines to get the heart rate up.
The trainer today understood that not being in the red the whole time is actually a sign of fitness rather than the opposite, also told me that they have my max HR set at 164, so the percentages would be even lower if using the true max.
Hello AC8, sounds like you have been mega busy - the marathon will be a breeze compared.
Do you have a plan?
I've had an infernal sore throat this week, it set in almost as soon as I finished Perivale 5 [40:04], the race was packed this year and I way overran the course trying to get sub 40, average was 07:52 miling, and it all felt very good and possible.
Until I saw that the whole thing was won by an FV55 in exactly 10 mins less than it took me! Hurrah!
ParkRun ths morning - 25:06 not too bad given the state of the lungs, again all very doable.
Oh! I found a new thing called Speedflex, what a laugh, they have a wall display that tells you your heart rate and percentage effort in very big numbers, and training zones are red for maximal, amber for still happening, green for not a lot, and then blue is chilled.
Well I was only in red 4% of the time [compared with 96.5% by someone else], and I ony burned 221 calories against 720!
Noticed that my HR, & zone colour dropped like a stone in the 5 sec rest breaks & between sets, whereas others stayed red.
