It's a very hard habit to brake isn't it tRicky?
you realise im doing "breaking" on purpose after my slip up yesterday and ricky pointing it out.
no im determined to brake you
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).
