Super smashing sunday session elevates elderly english ergers (h)eart rate. Today UT2 I have been ducking it of late and was really struggling to get any motivation to do it. I split it into 20 minute chunks to make it more palatable.

3x20UT2

5026m 19 135

5002m 19 139

5031m 19 135

Last Night I read Touching the Void (again) Brilliant tale of triumph over adversity.

I seem to have tweaked my left side/lower back (yesterdays contortions painting dormers) which has given me aggro all day, not too bad on the erg But todays 10x45 was a massive mental battle I managed 8 in one go which all things considered I am pretty happy to have done.
ERG

I did 2 more 10minutes later

Thanks, I think realistically to do the 10 I would need to drop the pace half a split or so,,,,, maybe I will find out in 8 months.

You can see the mental battle unfold from rep 5 onwards. And to do a couple more on top of that shows dedication.

And damn am I getting nervous! One week to get through then the taper, I am tempted to do a 1500 on `Sunday to hopefully boost my confidence. I just don't want to miss the 4x3 though I guess I could do the 1500 then 3x3. Back a bit better today its one of those where you need to keep moving.

I thought that when I did my 2k, but afterwards there was NO WAY I would have been able to train properly. A max 1500 would be a good replacement session and valuable in the build up I think.

I will decide on the day, If I do the 1500 it will be at hoped for 2k pace rather than a true TT. But then I think why not just do a 2k??

8pm Long leg bench
60x10x2
100x10
131.5x6
141.1x1
151.5x1 LLPB
152.5x1 LLPB

100x20
Everything was creaky, definitely prefer AM for bench.

Last week I did my lowest HR sub7 @26spm, today I thought I would rate up to 28spm and get an even lower HR my HR had different ideas mildly disappointing.

ERG 8mins 1908m 20 115

Had my first crop of Fresh spinach today, unsurprisingly more delicious than the shop stuff.
Also a bonfire in the rain.
I might push the boat out and watch a film tonight. Rock N roll.

JSL, Sam liked Tenet the other 2 look good but are not free on Amazon. Spinach has been very easy to grow, started on the windowsill then planted some out Boy has chomped it straight out of the pot I cut a bit off. I am growing some in Tubs to try to keep pests off.

JLL, The lengths I have to go to to get you to post in my log Cool

AM Bench
60x10x2

903m 1.39.6 32 176

I struggled to keep going in rep 1 (mentally) I was pretty spent(physically and mentally) at the end of rep 3 I knew It would be tough to do another rep at decent pace I HD halfway through av was about 1.41.8 but I was fading bad.

PUNISHMENT 3x100
