It’s all uphill

Posted by thepeteplan on March 24, 2008

The second attempt at the speed pyramid session today in week 2 of cycle 2 of the Pete Plan. 1:34.1 average to beat from¬†last time which means I should do the 250, 500 and 750 on the way up at exactly 1:34.1….

Training:

1k warm up = 1:54 / 24

250m = 46.6  / 1:33.2 / 35

500m = 1:33.5 / 33

750m = 2:20.3 / 1:33.5 / 34

1k = 3:09.8 / 1:34.9 / 34

750m = 2:20.9 / 1:33.9 / 35

500m = 1:33.7 / 35

250m = 44.8 / 1:29.6 / 38

Ave = 12:29.9 / 1:33.7 / 34

Overall an improvement of 2.9 seconds on the total session time, or 0.4 on the average split. I either went a bit too fast on the way up the pyramid, or didn’t put quite as much effort as I could have done into the 1k. It felt uphill all the way, so I’m inclined (no pun intended) to think that I should have stuck to the average from last time on the way up so that I could have been negative splitting from the 1k. All improvements are welcome on the interval sessions though, however they come.

An enforced day off tomorrow I think, as I have a 1 day conference to attend in London, and then a work social event in the evening. Then into the heat chamber again Wednesday afternoon for some cycling intervals this time, which may rule out the 4 x 2k on Wednesday evening I fear.
