Another bash at the CTC today.
2k WU 7:52.0 r22 HR 145 max DF120
C-breeze moved and max DF 188. Feet up 3 holes so heels can’t lift.
I felt pretty happy with that. Not rating in the 80s like some, but I have very little in the way of fast twitch fibers.
Strapless 2k to flush the legs in preparation for another go. DF120
8:09.9 r22 2:02.4 HR 147 max
Another CTC attempt and this time I called Fiona down to provide encouragement:
I made a conscious effort to shorten the first couple of strokes even more.
I tied up in the last few strokes desperately hanging on for all it was worth. All it was worth was another 0.3 seconds but a pace improvement of 0.8/500m which is huge.
Another strapless 2k to finish. DF120
8:10.0 r22 2:02.5 HR 145 max
