Steady distance training
Posted by thepeteplan on April 29, 2008
My current work schedule isn’t allowing me to get to the gym at lunchtime most days, leaving training to straight after work before going home. I don’t enjoy this as much, and because I’ve trained at lunchtime for so long my nutrition schedule fits in with that. Rather than training between 1115 and 1215 then eating lunch, I’m having to eat lunch at 1330 and train at 1630 – not ideal, or at least I’m not used to it. I think for the remainder of the time the trial is on at work I might experiment some days with training before work, leaving me the option then of a further session in the evening either on rowpro, or the turbo trainer.
45mins = 12077m / 1:51.7 / 23
9mins splits: 1:52.1, 1:51.8, 1:51.7, 1:51.9, 1:51.3 (all 23spm)
I have neglected doing any weights since before the marathon so just stuck in one quick exercise before going home:
Bench press: 50kg, 3 sets of 12
