When I came home first thing to do was have a cup of coffee and discuss today fun ride. As Piet left for home, I quickly prepared for the run in de blistering sun.
15min warm up, then mile repeats at 6min/mile
The plan for today was to do a 15 min warm up followed by some mile repeats at Ironman pace. Which for me should average around 6min/mile. At least, thats what i'm currently trying to do. Sometimes I can, and sometimes I can't.
After the warm up, my body already felt tired and stress. So I stopped for 60sec to stretch my upper body. This seemed to help.
Then the mile repeats started with 2min between each mile. After 4 mile repeats I decided to do a sort of sprint session. 1min run followed by 30sec rest. Each run adding half a minute but still keeping the same rest time. After just 45min I finished my run exercise and went home for a quick recovery ride with my girl.
Recovery ride with my girl
I grabbed something to eat and some iced water, changed into my lycra, filled our bidons with energy drink and we went for a nice recovery ride. Even though the sun was flaming hot, we still enjoyed the ride.
