How are zones defined?

MarkyV said...

smells like specificity to me.

poor Jonnyo, he must have to bring pages of notes with him to the pool to remember all the details..

where does one OW swim in canada? Are there icebergs?

"Do the strides!" LOL

Interesting, walking rests after the strides. That would make them much more attractive to me. jaretj

I hope Jonnyo likes to SWIM!

zone are define as;
z1 slow
z2 i can still talk
z3 the fun just started
z4 trying to drop tom evans
z5 there is a freaking bear trying to catch me

as for the swim, he already tell me when to swim, that is enough, imagine if he was telling me what to do in the water....i would go crazy

If I was to take that schedule and double the volume of all the workouts, would I become twice as fast as jonnyo? ;-)
