Digital Media and Peak Training Effect

Seeking Peak Training EffectI’m running immediately after I complete every timetabled activity in the digital media module. I’m going to start sharing some of my workouts by blogging about them and hope others in the fitness media ring do the same thing.

I’m helped by my Suunto Ambit 3 watch, the one I wear every day, because when I feel it on my wrist during classroom sessions, I want to get outside and use it to measure my workouts.

I’m trying to understand Peak Training Effect PTE and think that within a few months I’ll be recording 10km every day with max heart rates and peak training effects showing up on a progress chart. If I’m correct, a combination of daily distances, interval training to reach max heart rate and a pace to record above a 3.0 for PTE will get me in shape to finish a 10km road race with my youngest daughter.

Suffer Score Increasing

I can thank Evan and Paul for pushing me through soft ground and onto a high water mark as measured by my Strava Suffer Score.

I’m getting measureable improvements in both my distance and speed. I reckon I will be able to consistently run an eight kilometer pace when my weight drops below 99 kg.
