Turbo Training
Leader:
Phil Ward
Start Time:
7:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
This is the second in another block of 10 turbo sessions. Drop in for a one off session or sign up for all 10. You'll find us a friendly, inclusive bunch who'll never leave you behind on the hills; we can guarantee that the weather will be good too!

Each session, of approximately 1 hour's duration, will comprise of a warm up, a workout focusing on different elements of training and a warm down. Different leaders plan and deliver each session, accompanied by a soundtrack.

Tonight: Warm up commencing 18:40 onwards - the warmer the better for the workout that will start at 19:00.

Aim: To improve your maximum aerobic capacity (i.e. your power at the height of your oxygen uptake) by pinpointing repeatable 1-minute power efforts to really stress your aerobic capabilities in order to improve them. Between these efforts will be long recovery slots - fear not, it is quite within your grasp ;-)

There is a small charge to cover the cost of hiring the hall. Please contact Karen if you have any questions.

Report:
A merry band (and a mystery transient guest - who was he ?) assembled for a testing VO2 session. The guest didn't stay to ride though. We were working really well above threshold while maintaining great poise. Well done all, as a group we are gradually adopting a higher cadence, recruiting more slow twitch muscle mass to the cause, which in turn will be extending our endurance out on the road and looking after joints at the same time. Especially good to see Katherine and Des back in the saddle after episodes of illness. Hopefully that wasn't too much of an assault on the system ?
