A good guide for this is. If needed could you have done it again after 5 min? If you could not you pushed to hard. Being 4 min faster really shows the first try was extremely cautious.Blindside wrote: ↑May 6th, 2021, 5:30 pmThanks for all the advice i feel as if I'm on the right track now.
My first 5000 I didn't push hard enough
In my first interval session, I pushed too hard and felt the pain for little gain
Really enjoyed my 5000M today, felt as if I had pushed it but I could have gone on at the end there was no distress but I worked. Tried to concentrate more on the leg drive and a later less influential pull. My initial 5000M was 27:57 on a stroke rate of 23 and today it was 23.29 on a stroke rate of 22, felt comfortable but certainly felt I had trained. I hope this indicates a slightly better form and gauging of effort. I will stop imposing on you all now and get my head down train more, follow the plan and type less
How you form is can not be said based on the numbers alone.
