Run 5k @ 80%
Notes: woke up for an appointment and then got this workout in. I haven't run in quite sometime so I was interested in how this would feel. I was a bit sore from yesterday, and I definitely felt it in my hamstrings when I was running. My HR was under 170 for most of the run, but the biggest limiting factor was body fatigue. I was just hurting all over from training the day before. Obviously, I wasn't trying to push it, but I don't know how much faster I could have gone based on how my body felt. Hopefully, the afternoon session will go a bit better on the Airdyne.
50 cals @85%/rest 90 sec x 10
Avg. between: 1:50 - 2:00 (depended mostly on how many cals I racked up in the first 30sec)
Notes: This workout sucked. My brain and body were hurting from the run in the morning. I warmed up much better than last week for this and I was able to go 15sec faster on most sets. My HR was higher however and the last couple of sets it crept to 186 BPM. I didn't feel systemically lactic, jut bad burning in my legs. I might have over done it a bit on this workout, but I wanted to push my limits today. One thing I did notice is that my HR got back under 135 BPM in the 90sec rest. Looked good, felt horrible.
