This training break will include a renewed focus on strength, specifically core and upper body strength and two quality workouts per day. The main formal workouts will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Saturday and then short tempo workouts on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday or Saturday and a recovery run on Sunday.
With the fire I lost my strength room for a while, but now have it up and running again with a few new additions;
- Set of rings for chin ups, dips and push up
- Ab straps for leg lifts
- 20-pound Dynamax Medicine Ball for wall ball squats
- Redcord for core work
In terms of the nordic side of training roller skiing will be added in most likely in the next few weeks once the upper body strength comes online, so to speak:-)
And we have one more 3000m race coming up on August 25th, the Fast Trax staff time trial!
