No, I don't read your log brycec, it's got a lot of gym stuff in it and no real training. Yawn, sets, yawn, reps, snore. ;-)

touche / ouch.

funny how my no real training has me running faster on my first 4km loop TT than when I was intentionally trying to do tempo sessions on it last year.

in before you suggest that is all from my 14km 4 days a week on the bike :P

Well, when you're starting from your level of fitness you could get significantly fitter by simply exerting yourself by slicing bread, or battling through the skin of a custard - so it's hardly surprising that preening in front of a mirror has put your heart rate up enough to make it a bit fitter.

Plus you've done more on the road bike in 2 months than you did in all of 2015

Oh no - fletch you got caught in the Tooms troll bait!

Interesting stat though - didnt think I would have surpassed it on time yet! - mind you 75 sessions vs 17 talks to the distance per session - also slower paced.

I can usually get back within 10% of my 5km pb with 6 weeks of fairly short, not very intense running, so I'd guess it's still enough cardio work to make a significant difference. (The last 10% is a different story).
