Bicycle parking in Delft (Netherlands) - Incredible bicycle parking, so it's nice to pedal around, but I think the accesses to the parking lot are more impressive than the parking lot itself.
Make your own pulse sensor - An interesting link for DIY lovers. Create your own pulse sensor using the Intel Edison board.
A week of hard work, or at least in terms of training days. I still haven't been able to reach the level of quality of training I was looking for, because these days as soon as I noticed the slightest discomfort I stopped training. If there's one thing I don't want to do right now it's precisely to take risks.
|Tuesday||Running||6.81 km||4:53 min/km||160 ppm|
|Thursday||Running||9.32 km||5:08 min/km||157 ppm|
|Friday||Swimming + gym||1.100m||2:14 100m/min||-|
|Sunday||Running + swimming||12.02 km - 800m||5:19 min/km - 2:16 100m/min||156 ppm|
On Tuesday I was going out to do 8 km, but after last Sunday's beating (I had a race, and I also did swimming and cycling...), shortly after doing 6 km I stopped, I was carrying the very loaded quads, so the thing stopped there and it was time to walk home.
On Thursday, the intention was also to go longer than the start. I wanted to go 12 kilometers, but this time it was a puncture in the right knee that made me stop. Again, I return to leg.
The next day, Friday, I did 1,100m of pool work. And after completing it, specific gym work for just over 30 minutes.
The first times correspond to lengths of 25 meters, I forgot to change the size of the pool before starting the training.
After Saturday's break, on Sunday I was finally able to do the training I had thought of. 12 kilometres before entering the pool, at a leisurely pace and ending with a two kilometre climb.
And after Sunday's practice, it was time to relax...
And with this, to wait for this next week, in which the intention is to return to look for average distances on 12-15 kilometers and to introduce again series some day.
Thanks for reading me!
