3 x 20mins, varying drag

Posted by thepeteplan on March 11, 2009

3 x 20mins / 5 mins rest:

1. 130drag = 5411m / 1:50.8 / 25
2. 160drag = 5518m / 1:48.7 / 25
3. 120drag = 5508m / 1:48.9 / 26

Total = 60mins / 16438m / 1:49.5 / 25

This is a session I have only done once before, with Jamie P when I visited him in New York. It was a moderate effort level overall. It’s an interesting and different way to get through 60mins on the erg. The second 20mins feels pretty heavy when you’re not used to higher drag (so is probably good muscular training?), and then the final rep feels like there is nothing to pull against to begin with, and feels really light.

I picked this session today as I wanted to make sure I stayed hydrated after doing some easy exercise this morning in the thermal chamber at work. The first of 6 sessions in the chamber over the next 3 weeks each consisting of around 3 hours of intervals on a treadmill at temperatures up to about 50 degrees C wearing full military kit. Who says work can’t be fun?
