Kate’s Training Log – 14/8/19
Today’s session was all about staying tall and maintaining breath control. After a weekend of heavy volume load then heavy weights work to begin the week it was nice to pull back and focus on good technique and posture.
Today’s Energy System Development was about building aerobic capacity. 4 rounds of 4 minutes of hard work with 3 minutes active recovery between – not getting off the machine, rather actively slowing down your movement and consciously breathing to bring the heart rate back and letting the body recover. These rounds were designed to be really hard work, but long enough to be an aerobic effort with close to a 1:1 work/rest ratio, with the goal of each round being very close to equal across the board.
I did two of today’s ESD back to back, first on the assault runner then the assault bike. On both machines I was really working to stay upright to make breathing as easy as possible. I really enjoyed today, the running especially is feeling as if it’s improving!
ROUND 1: Assault Airrunner 781, 784, 788, 782m
ROUND 2: Assault Airbike calories 67, 70, 68, 69
