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