Today's workout was this:
4 X (60"/ 90"/ 60") steep hills at Vo2 max effort.
Rest intervals of 1' jogging between each/ 2' between sets.
Since I ran these up here at 8500 ft. altitude on a ridiculous hill I would call these V03 max which is a term that Jeff came up with.
Max HR on the 90" intervals was 187. Max HR on the 60" intervals was 181.
I would rank this as one of the top 5 hardest workouts I've ever completed.
During the 1' rests my HR was falling in to the 140's.. On the 2' rests it was in the 120's..
My recovery protocol for a session like this-
Hot shower. It was damn cold out..
Skins compression tights.
1 liter of water with whey protein.
1 mega vitamin B
Lay flat for as long as I can..
I would eat usually but I was completely nauseous. My lungs feel burned and I'm coughing. My back feels crampy from the effort on the hills. Legs are numb. All in all I feel great!
