At work on the model C with PM5 and ergdata.
Fletcher warmup. Felt hard this morning.
Then 2 quick 500s. Target pace was 1:38, r32. Got over excited in the last rep.
Then a normal 2K cool down.
So, a confluence of events have led me to decide to scratch from the Crash-Bs. The big thing is that I will be on a business trip all next week and there are a bunch of things I need to take care of this weekend. I can’t afford the time to spend most of Sunday at the arena.
So, instead, I think I will do 2K test on my own tomorrow afternoon at home. I’m a little bummed out, but I think it’s the right call.
Based on the 4 x 1K on Tuesday and these 500s in the taper, I think I am good for something around a 6:40. I think I will target a 1:40 split at r30 and see if I can speed up at all through the last 1000m.
I will try to stick to a reasonable workout schedule next week on the road, but I will be in 4 cities in 4 days. Then the following week, I will do assessment tests (1 min, 6K, 2-speed) to see where I stand. Then I will transition to a base aerobic block. Next major events are in Late June and early July. These are 1K OTW sprints, so I will follow the same basic periodized progression to them. Base, then distance threshold, then 6 to 12′ intervals, then sprint and peak power training. I will map out the plan next week while I sit on planes.
