Turbo Training Tuesday

As usual, Tuesday seems to be my day of fitness training. I’ve just done a turbo trainer session and will be off to circuit training and then swimfit this evening.

The Turbo Trainer sessions are going well. Last night I did a 3:2 minute interval session where I did 7 repetitions of 3 minutes @ 320 Watts and 2 minutes @ 120 Watts, the highest I’ve ever done that workout at and it was OK.

My maximum heart rate was only 150bpm so I obviously need to work a bit harder on these.

Today I did a 1:1 minute interval session, so after a warm up did 7 repetitions of 1 minute @ 400 Watts and 1 minute recovery @ 120 Watts. Again, 400 Watts is the most I’ve ever done this at and although it did get quite tough and my heart rate peaked at 166 bpm I did finish all 7 reps. The heart rate trace is pretty though!

Time for some food now and plenty of water to get me ready for tonight’s activities.

    Phew, circuits was pretty tough last night… Certainly got my heart rate going anyway with a peak of 170 bpm.

    Swimfit was good too, but I think I need to work on my technique a bit as Lauren says I sweep my hand across under my body when I breathe. It doesn’t feel as though I do, but I’m sure she’s right so I shall have to fix that.
