Progress to 2k

Posted by thepeteplan on December 15, 2008

Not really over-training, but I definitely pushed myself hard on Saturday for the 30min pb. It obivously stressed my “breathing passages” such that my body thought they then needed a lot of lubrication for 24hours after, as it was literally as if I had a really bad cold for 24hours, which is completely gone again today. Whatever the reason, a rest day yesterday was the best course of action.

Today was to be a steady distance piece, and a slow one to make it a proper recovery. I was bored of it by 4k in though, so decided to row to 5k then do the next row in the progression up to 2k. Aim for today was 1150m with each 200m split under 1:32 then a faster final 150m.

5k warm up = 1:54 / 23

1150m = 3:30.4 / 1:31.4 / 37
200m = 1:30.7 / 40
400m = 1:31.7 / 36
600m = 1:31.7 / 36
800m = 1:32.0 / 36
1000m = 1:31.7 / 36
1150m = 1:30.6 / 38

This felt comfortable enough today, and with 10weeks to Boston and 850m further to go that means 100m extra per week with a bit of time to spare, and currently 1.6seconds in hand on the split time for a pb.
