After the great session I had last Thursday (5x2k) I knew (I hoped) this session would be great. And I was right.
This time I was going 10 seconds per km faster on this second cycle. Six reps of 1k at 4:10/km with 60 seconds rest. I also hoped my heart rate monitor would work properly (last time it gave me strange readings on my rest average heart rate RHR).
The first and second reps were fine. They never gave me any trouble. I could find the pace and went steady most of the time. The third and fourth it’s when you start feeling tired. Then you still have two more to go. Here’s the challenge. It’s when I tell myself I have to keep going because these two reps will make all the difference. That’s how I go through this session. This time, I felt it easier than the last one.
