Yeah great. I'm 41 (today's my birthday actually
I'll let you know my waking pulse averages asap
The 10k race I'm doing is on Sunday 23/11/08
by the way
Right. So I need to get my head 'round the schedule, and please excuse my ignorance!
I should start tomorrow on the 2000m session (i.e day 3)?
start with 4x2k R90-2min 8min 50 (4.25 per k) T
This translates as:-
4 x 2000 metres (with 90 seconds to 2mins rest between). Aiming for 8min 50 seconds for each 2k (i.e. 4:25 per k pace)
I think that's what it means anyway!
Struggling to get my head round the k pace stuff as have always worked in mins per mile in the past (it works out at about 7:06 per mile pace I think).
2000m * 1.6093 = 1.24 miles
1.24miles / 8:50 = 07:06 per mile pace
I think maybe I need to re-set the Forerunner to km instead of miles otherwise I'm gonna confuse myself!
Either way, it sounds like a nice gentle introduction. Not!
