This was the first of this type of session which I have named my Combi (Combination) session. As I mentioned before I want to slowly (very slowly) increase the volume of L4 work I am doing and this session of the week has previously been a 2x20 SST session. To make progress I decided to make the first 20 minute effort a L4 effort instead of SST and then work at SST for the second 20 minutes.
As it turned out the session went really well, it was interesting to note out of interest that my average HRs for the L4 and SST efforts were within one beat of each other. Comparing my HR and power data for this session with Tuesday's 2x20 L4 session I am pleased with the session and will continue to use it until such time as I can "comfortably" move to a 2x20 L4 session twice a week.
If anyone reading has any views or experience of this type of combination session or the value or otherwsie of such sessions I'd be very interested to hear them.
