Thursday: Hill Repeats
Warm-up of 1.2 miles
Hills: 3 minutes up and 2:30 down with a 30 second recovery X 5 (approximately .28 miles up)
Saturday: Flat Distance
55 Minutes of flats through and around Stanford
Sunday: Long Trail Run
80 minutes of up and down through Arastradero in Los Altos Hills. Great, great run with nice climbs and some good recovery portions. The grades make it a really good place for building strength and endurance.
Wow, forgot how great this type of pyramid is for accomplishing a lot of work while maintaining strong technique. The high rep sets going back to back is much different then the single arm sets for time.
Max VO2 Kettlebell Snatch
total reps:420 (same as last week but the consistent pace was the difference.)
Great workout but these are tough after long hill runs which is demanding on the legs and hips. The cumulative fatigue has been the biggest challenge as this is day 5 in a row. I am aware of this and it makes me that much more pleased to do this workout and push through with a smile and a great sweat :-)
90 Minutes with Kent Bond of Willow Glen Yoga
Like my master Marianne says, find a teacher or teachers you enjoy and/or styles. Kent is one I enjoy, because he makes me a better practitioner of Yoga. He is one of the best you will find and this evident in the fact that he teaches at one of the top teacher training programs around in Santa Barbara. Always learn something about myself in relation to the pose and practice in his classes...AWESOME!
