On Sunday I was otherwise occupied and we did not meet at Stromlo Forest Park. I will be going there this Sunday though.
Monday I ran early, then I was joined by Andy, Bron, Garry, Isaac, Jen, Mick & Warrick for 6 x ~450m loop, including a sharp hill, and exercises, repeated every 5 minutes.
This coming Monday we will be kicking on at the Southern Cross Club/Yacht Club after our training session for one of our occasional social get-togethers and meals.
As well as running training I have been building up the intensity of my gym work and can report that my heart rate considerably exceeds 220 - 66 at the peak of these sessions.
And while this week's 3000m race was quicker all round than last week's, both weeks my heart rate was a consistent steady 160 bpm from the 500m mark to the end.
- Last week - splits 4:30, 4:36, 4:39 = 13:45
- This week - splits 4:22, 4:28, 4:30 = 13:20
See you at the Southern Cross Club if not before
