Going up

Most probably the dip last week was caused by emotional non-sport related stress. This week I started to work on new projects with new goals. And it positively impacted my training. The first 3 workouts of this week were quite good.

  • 8×800 on ~2:50-2:56. It was a bit harder than usual, I suspect it’s because it’s first time I’m doing it on hills
  • recovery ride next morning
  • Masters Swimming session with a “fitness test”

“Fitness test” was something out couch does to us from time to time. At the end of workout, usually after 2500-2700 yards comes a very hard interval set. I suspect he tries to determine if we should stay on our lane or move down.

For our lane 4 it was 8×100 with the following timing: 1:40, 1:40, 1:35, 1:35, 1:40, 1:40, 1:35, 1:35. I was leading the lane and finished about 10-6 seconds before the end of the interval.  I think it means I passed the test.

Still targeting an intense weekend. The ideal plan is to hit 3 hard weeks and then do a 2 week taper.
