The Pete Plan blog

2 weeks to go…

Posted by thepeteplan on August 30, 2011

Until the end of the Pete Plan distance training group, and time for the 60min time trial. On our Monday core sessions we have moved up from 5min reps right through to 15mins reps each with 1min rest between them. Now as we go back down in the rep durations that the 60mins is split in to the rests are shortening, and the pace is increasing. Yesterday’s fun was 7min30 reps with only a 45 second rest between them. Enough to refocus, drink a couple of mouthfuls of water, and then set off again.

8 x 7min30 / 45sec rest:
2066m / 1:48.9 / 26
2066m / 1:48.9 / 26
2066m / 1:48.9 / 26
2067m / 1:48.8 / 26
2067m / 1:48.8 / 26
2068m / 1:48.8 / 27
2070m / 1:48.6 / 27
2151m / 1:44.6 / 28

60mins = 16622m / 1:48.2 / 26

Happy with that set as it’s the furthest I’ve done on one of these Monday sessions, and over a second quicker pace than when I did this session with 1min rests around 3 weeks ago. The biggest thing is though that I can hold the pace through the session and still have a lot left for a fast last rep – it’s all about getting through the majority of the distance with confidence before pushing on when the line is in sight.
