Haha, thanks man, you bet i will, check how the saga continues :

14 May 2020

EASY RUN 6.5K @ 45:!6
-Decided to not look watch at all. Just go at a pace that feels 'easy', not slow but not pushing either and whatever happens. Expected it to land around 7:00/km which is exactly what happened, average pace was 7:01. Average heart rate was 155 , a little more than how easy it felt but it was also 25' / 80% humidity so that probably worsened things a bit.

Watch workout benefit assessment : VO2max  :o :o :o
VO2max down to 39 , estimated race 5K time up tp 27:40  :o :o :o :o :o
I guess that either someone from Garmin is reading the forum so he hardcodes false numbers in my watch for fun, or it is just broken.  :uhhhfacepalm:
woot

lolololol  ;D :P  :highfive: ( adarq, we need the happycry emoji )

Curious to see their face after this though:

16 May 2020

TIME TRIAL 5K 23:42 , ALL TIME  :personal-record: :ibrunning: :personal-record: :ibrunning: :personal-record: :ibrunning:
Didn't even feel like i maxed my potential. Was just a good day, not a perfect one. I feel i can challenge breaking 23:00 in a well peaked race.
Still, delighted that i broke the 4:45 average.
SUCK IT WATCH!!!  :raging: :raging: :raging:
Ridiculous fact: after the run watch says estimated 5K race time : 27:20  :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm:
Oh well, glad we sorted it out. Now i know my estimation of fitness/max ability was spot on and watch's VO2max/race estimates are just rough indications that shouldn't be taken seriously.
Carry on.
woot

Easy run 7K @ 44:54
Was aiming for 6:45 average pace, went a bit faster and got 6:30.  I guess it is fine.

Gonna stop logging watch assessments.
As last log, this easy workout was characterized a VO2max one ( keeping long distance above lactate threshold :uhhhfacepalm: ) and estimated VO2max fell to 39 again, estimated race 5K time is 27:36  :uhhhfacepalm::uhhhfacepalm::uhhhfacepalm:

Thanks Andrew.
Sad about the watch, it was doing awesome till this month. What is irritating is that i waited 3 months and spent 200 euros more to get the 6 for the improved algorithms. Whatever. Im very happy with everything else. The multiple custom monitor screens are amazing. Also using it for ski or even for weightlifting is an awesome experience, the fucker auto recognizes and counts reps and exercises, it got pushups right the other day, wtf how, hand barely moves at them!

BW SQUATS:
2x20 paused ATG ( -1 set )
3x10 each leg single leg @parallel box ( +1 set )

PUSHUPS: 3x15 ( +3 reps per set ) + 2x12

REVERSE PEC DECK: 5x15 ( +3 reps per set )

Progress ha! Still can't get all pushup sets @ 15 reps damn. Legs and back good for much more tho.

"Speed" workout

-Jog 1K
-SPRINT 8x400m / 3 mins walking revovery.
-Jog 1K
Total : 6.85K @ 48:06

Goal paces were 4:00 downhill , 4:30 mixed, 5:00 uphill. Went 20-30s faster at first 2 sprints, regulated it perfectly at the last 5.
So what about the third? That one was all downhill , so i screwed goal pace and went out 100%, just for fun and to see what i'd do:
Got 1:24 ( 3:29 pace )  :personal-record: :ibrunning: :personal-record: :ibrunning: :personal-record: :ibrunning:
