1 mile repeats

It’s supposed to be a recovery week this week for me but yesterday’s session was 3x 1 mile repeats with 3 minutes between intervals and the aim was to increase to speed for each mile. I set my Garmin Forerunner 910XT up for the workout, inputting target zones of 6:40 – 6:30 mins/mile for the...

TrainerRelay 1

TrainerRoad TrainerRelay and Workout Builder

I got to play with a new feature of the TrainerRoad Beta software yesterday.

Burning off the Christmas Excess

I’m sure I’m not the only one, but I ate far too much over Christmas and did very little exercise so it’s now time to get back to it. The ‘rest’ doesn’t seem to have done too much damage as I felt OK on our Mountain Bike Ride at the weekend although I have put...

Enjoying Swimfit 4

Enjoying Swimfit

Swimfit was good on Tuesday this week. As usual I was fairly tired by the time I got there having done a lab test for Jon at Sports and Exercise Science and then an hour of circuit training, but I soon got into the swimming. After a warm up and some drills Lauren had us...

Turbo Trainer Intervals – When will it end?

I didn’t think I’d be able to do that! Yesterday, despite still having a bit of a cold, I did my 3:2 minute intervals workout on the turbo trainer. Last time I did this workout on Feb 1st I did the hard efforts at 280 Watts and wrote: My legs were feeling it come the...
