It’s Friday, so hard distance day on the Pete Plan. Work pressures today meant that I could only manage a short gym session at lunchtime, so a faster CTC time was an obvious choice for today.
Training – lunchtime:
3k warm up = 1:53 / 24
CTC 1609m = 5:05.4 / 1:34.9 / 34
400m splits = 1:33.3, 1:35.6, 1:36.6, 1:34.2
500m cool down
Bench press = 60kg, 3 sets of 8
Cable row = 48.75kg, 3 sets of 10 (max weight available)
Training – evening:
A short ride on the turbo tonight. Yes, this is the first time I’ve mentioned training on a bike turbo trainer in the blog, because it’s the first time I’ve used it since starting the blog.
25mins / 22.7mph / 239watts average — 45.0mph / 523watts max
I’m sure everyone else has a bike in their living room? It’s a GT series 5 on a Tacx flow, very nice to ride.
A very enjoyable short ride after not using it for a couple of weeks. A few bursts at high speed, hence the high maximum. I’m pretty happy with the CTC time at lunchtime too for the effort. A fairly comfortable row through the middle, and under 6:20 pace with enough left to have done the final 400m if it was set.
