Track on a Treadmill....

Today should have been at Chev track but running under water is too difficult!
Program : Warm-up with stationary bike & easy drills for 15 minutes.

Treadmill at the gym: Start running at 8kph. Gradually increase speed over next 3 minutes until running at 10kph at 3 minutes. Take heart rate.

Stay at 10kph for a further 3 minutes. Take heart rate.
Slow down & stop for 2 minutes exactly (i.e. from when starting to slow down).

Repeat the above twice...i.e. HR readings at 3, 6, 11, 14, 19 and 22 minutes.
Warm-down 6 minutes brisk walk.

And the winner is.........! Rather, the results are:

At 3 minutes HR = 124bpm; at 6 minutes HR = 127bpm.

At 11 minutes = 124 ; at 14 minutes = 128

At 19 minutes = 125 ; at 22 minutes = 131

I enjoyed this was short & easy! Ewen predicted my heart rates would be between 120 and 130. How did he know that so exactly??!!


  1. That Ewen is a clever boy! Perhaps he rigged your HRM? ;)

  2. I was about to say "he's a clever boy, that Ewen" then I found Beki had beaten me to it.

    He definitely is very goof though.
