This week was the first week back on the CompuTrainer after taking the CP30 test last Saturday. Tuesday was not a good morning. I couldn’t even hold the new 108% of CP30 for the first 6 minute interval. I don’t know if it was because my legs were tired from the test or what, but it was just too much. Thursday was better and I was able to hold the 2 x 20 interval and the prescribed watts. So, this week I’m going to try for 104% of my current CP30 and do the test again.
In the pool I’ve had a couple of good workouts. On Friday at the Beverly Y I was able to do 10 x 100 on 1:25. That’s the first time I was able to do that. Now I have to do it again to prove it wasn’t a fluke! This morning when I hit the pool I did 5 x 100s on 1:30 and followed that up with 5 x 100 at 1:14/1:18/1:18/1:19/1:19 on 2:00. I felt pretty good about that, but I would really like them all under 1:15. That will be tough at the Danvers pool where I seem to be slower.
This was a good week on the weight front. I was able to hold under 160 for most of the week and this morning weight in at 157.5
