Lengthy Cruise Then Intervals – BionicOldGuy

As we speak for my “laborious leg day” journey I took my recumbent southeast in the direction of Gilroy and again. I began out with two hours at a brisk tempo, then completed up with some intervals. The journey was difficult however fulfilling. This was additionally good mindfulness training- it takes focus to maintain the tempo brisk however regular throughout the tempo portion. Intervals convey up the whiny a part of your mind (“I don’t need to preserve going, that is uncomfortable!”) and it’s good psychological coaching to simply observe these ideas however not give in to them.

Two-hour regular tempo journey. I used to be taking pictures for a mean HR within the vary 110 to 120 so 112 is okay. Ideally it shouldn’t present a lot deviation from the common so my tempo was fairly good in that respect too

I’ve lately added some longer intervals to my session to higher put together me for challenges just like the Llagas hill climb.

Interval session. The 16 coronary heart fee peaks are the intervals (4×4 min, 4×2 min, 8×1 min)
Heart street, a typical nation street on the East facet from Morgan Hill via San Martin to Gilroy. Scenic, flat and quick, with gentle visitors. The fog didn’t burn off until late morning however that was high quality, it stored it cool throughout the journey.

I uploaded this exercise to Strava (, see member “wealthy king”) to see if it could pick any segments, and it discovered a number of. A part of my journey went on Dryden street which turns into Crews street. There’s a difficult little uphill referred to as the “Crews bump”, it turned out I used to be quantity 4 out of 11 in my age group which have performed that phase. My greatest effort was in November final yr, on my upright, with a time of 6 min 46 sec. I used to be a little bit slower in the present day on the ‘bent. I clearly can enhance that, as a result of I didn’t know this was a phase so I’ve by no means focussed particularly on my effort over the “bump”. It’s good to have these native challenges for motivation.
