I had intended to use a classic periodised program. But it isn't working out the way I planned.
Here's what this week was supposed to be...
Zone 1)95 min
Zone 2)70 min
Zone 3) 8
Here is roughly what I have done so far (I keep forgetting to turn the HRM back on after I take a break)
Zone 1) 30 min
Zone 2) 110 min
Zone 3) 3 or 4 min (not sure)
I have a trainer and a rower. What I do on both is warm up and then over the course of a half hour build in intensity slowly. I am usually at or in Zone 3 by that time, and need a break. A couple minutes later I come back and it's the same thing but a little easier for 15 to 25 min.
I need to work in some intervals. But it seems to me I need a different program.
I have one more workout this week, I am going to try Spinerval's Recovery and Technique.
Oh, I am 56 and a Clydesdale. I am losing weight now, but I have a long way to
I am improving rapidly; so I guess I could keep going like this. But I was hoping for something structured this year.
