Rotation 1 complete

Posted by thepeteplan on March 3, 2013

I set out late January to rotate through the core Pete Plan sessions, but with minor modifications. It took me a month from first to last, but I have now completed the first rotation and so have some numbers to work from. The longer intervals were exactly as in the PP, but for the shorter intervals I replaced the speed pyramid with a 5 x 750m, and stepped the rest periods up from 2min for the 500s, to 3:30 for the 750s, and the standard 5min for the 1ks. The results of the 6 core sessions were:

27 Jan ’13: 8 x 500m / 2r = 12:48.3 / 1:36.0 / 34

1 Feb ’13: 5 x 1500m / 5r = 26:07.4 / 1:44.9 / 29

4 Feb ’13: 5 x 750m / 3:30r = 12:08.8 / 1:37.1 / 33

8 Feb ’13: 4 x 2k / 5r = 27:49.2 / 1:44.3 / 29

19 Feb ’13: 4 x 1k / 5r = 13:06.5 / 1:38.3 / 32

27 Feb ’13: 3k, 2.5k, 2k / 5r = 26:25.3 / 1:45.6 / 28

So today it is time to step back to the 8 x 500m, and aim to hit 1:36.0 from the start, hopefully with a fast last rep to beat the average. Being 5 weeks since the last effort, and without a big volume of training and having travelled with work in the mean time, I am not 100% confident of doing that. There is only one way to find out though.
