I saw a guy in the gym today beasting on the bike, he was doing intervals i think. If you can ramp the difficulty up and then do tabata protocol (i think 6x20s on, with 20s rest?) it can be a great conditioning tool. Doing steady state with bike though, i find im better at challenging my legs than my heart and lungs .. hr sticks around 135bpm which is a bit too leisurely but still hard work for my legs..

tabata is 8x20s on/10s rest. and the "on" is all-out, like you're riding away from a lion that's catching up to you.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

RUN 6.1K @ 37:48

Was 5K fast ( 29:00 ) and then 1.1K super slow



20 March 2020

RUN 7K @ 53:58

Went slow (7:49 average km pace ) , was supposed to be easy but average HR was 147 and watch said it was a VO2 max workout. Fail.



21 March 2020

RUN 5K @ 43:17

Watch said i was badly unrecovered and generally beat, so went ultra boring slow (8:30) to get a recovery workout.
Average heat rate was still 141 and watch said it was a pace workout. lol mega fail.



Aaaaaand , as of yesterday we are locked down. Solo running is still allowed though (but you need ID and a statement of where you live and why you are out ).

woot

It is fine, lockdown is the only way. Our government has shown immediate reflexes. Which is socking here, normally we are the worse. Maybe we were just lucky because the worst case in the world happened in Italy, right next to us, with a time delay of 2-3 weeks. So we saw a live demonstration of what is coming and locked down everything while still having very low numbers. It looks under control for now, authorities say we will stay locked down for another 4 weeks ( already 2-3 in ) and then re-evaluate.



26 March 2020

RUN 6K @ 48:19

Goal was an ultra-slow get-back-at it , achieved, watch agreed , said it was a base-focused slow pace workout.



29 March 2020

HIIT SESSION:

-1K @ 4:56
-500m @ 2:34
-400m @ 1:53
-5x200m ( slowest 51'' / fastest 45.9'' )
Slow jog 1K @ 8:30

Rest between sprints was slow walk ~200m ( so rest time about 2:30 ).

Watch said it was a pace workout. lol NOT , it was exhausting.



30 March 2020

RUN 4.65K @ 35:25

Watch said i was 100% recovered so i went for a fast 5K.
lol NOT , after 2K at a pace around 6:00 ( which felt hard as race pace , so high 4s/low5s ) i gassed out. Walked a bit , dropped HR down, slow jogged about 2K. HR was close to 150 and was getting tired even when going very slow. Makes sense after yesterday's brutal HIIT. Said fuck you garmin, im beat, called it a day and walked back home.



GARMIN guys : I have serious indications that my Garmin's GPS is not that accurate. Google maps and my samsung phone GPS agree on the mileage of the courses i do, garmin says it is less. That also kinda agrees with the paces i see sometimes and how they feel: I know im going faster, but watch thinks i covered less distance so it says i was slower.
Does anyone have similar experience? Have you tested your watches in terms of course distance accuracy?
