Week 10 - 2.2 Cardiovascular Development

For todays session, you will be cycling. It is an excellent tool to work without causing undue stress or fatigue whilst working your endurance. 

Non-Impact Cardio. Cycle, get yourself onto a spin-bike with a decent resistance setting.

Warm-up, light stretch, all that good stuff before this one.

  • Fartlek - 40 Min of: 2 min Fast, 1 min Slow
  • For the 2 minute "fast" increase the speed & resistance on the spin-bike
  • "Fast" period at sub-threshold pace
  • Do not exceed 85% MHR 

If you’re unfamiliar with Fartlek, it simply translates to “speed-play.” Increased speed for 2 minutes, cruise for 1 minute and so forth. Don’t go too hard, there’s plenty opportunity for this later. Pace yourself and maintain discipline.
