A new beginning

Posted by thepeteplan on February 25, 2008

If I’m going to launch a “Pete Plan Blog”, I really have to be following the Pete Plan. In the run up to the Munich 30min race I didn’t do any training below 5k pace for a couple of months, so now is the time to bring back in the speed work.

So today I have begun back on the Pete Plan with the first session of week 1. In this blog I will try to include all the training I do, including warm up, cool down, interval rest metres, and any additional training on top of the erg work. This will give a better indication exactly how I follow the plan, and also give me motivation to actually warm up once in a while!

 8 x 500m / 3:30 rest:

1:32.8 / 34

1:32.8 / 34

1:32.8 / 34

1:32.8 / 34

1:32.8 / 35

1:32.7 / 36

1:32.6 / 36

1:32.6 / 36

Averages = 12:21.9 / 1:32.7 / 35

Interval rest metres = 4009m

This was a tough start back into the speed intervals work, and I picked a pace about as fast as I could have maintained today, evident from the last rep not being any faster, and the rate creep over the second half.

So I’m back on the Pete Plan, and the “Pete Plan Blog”, your only official source of Pete Plan information, is born.
