So I've got that going for me, which is nice #caddyshack. Anyway, gorgeous day outside. Sun was in my eyes on the way back but that's okay - better sun than nothing. I over-dressed and was sweaty as heck despite the relatively light exertion. One of these days I'll do five miles just to say I did five, but I'm in no rush to do that. My made-up training program seems to be doing just fine for me. :)
 


Erik,

Running every day is NOT good training.  There's not enough room in the thread to detail why, but you should know that there are a plethora of training programs out there by professionals that will maximize your endurance and performance.  Just like someone should go to you for instruction on the golf swing, you should seek a better plan.  Good luck either way!

Thanks for the advice, but I'm sticking with the plan I've got. I don't think running a mile on my off days is going to do very much to hurt me. I typically work on form or jog pretty slowly. I'm not even topping 15 miles a week.

Upper body workout with weight for 40 minutes, followed by 30 min run at 7:45 min/mile pace.

Tomorrow is my long run (10-12 miles at 7:30-8:00 min/mile pace) followed by 1,000 meter swim.

Kettle bell workout.  45 minutes that, at times, is killer.

3.03 miles, 27:06.

 

 

Wore the VFFs for the first mile (400 slow, 400 fast x 2), then changed into the Pure Flows and forgot to move my foot pod over. :) So just the one mile shows up in the Garmin Connect data.
 
I'm getting pretty good at 8 MPH (that's only 7:30 so it's not great but it's not terrible either), so maybe next time I'll take it up a little more. 9 MPH is about a 6:40 but that seems a touch fast, so 8.5 or so should do it. 7:00 mile, which means the 400s would last only 105 seconds. Piece of cake right? We'll see. Sounds manageable.
 
I'm a bit off-kilter this week doing this on Wednesday so I'll probably just two two LSDs later, maybe back to back, and try to run faster miles on the other days or something.

Just wondering what this consist of?  I am always tweaking my workouts and do lot's of different ones, just wondering if you care to elaborate?

Long run day.

10 miles, 1 hour 15 min.  Use to be able to do that in an hour.  Getting slow...

post #262 of 1036

I did a quick Bullworker workout last night and took a sauna, plus four rounds of heavybag.  Today will be snow shoveling, and then a sauna.

Got a video.  Do aerobic, abs, arms, etc.  Custom workout.  Pick and choose.  Have five workouts of 15-17 minutes each.  I generally do three of the five.  There's tons of videos out there.

Windy and warm today.  25 miles of road cycling.  Would have gone longer but wind was driving me crazy.....crosswind gusts blowing me into the traffic. Not good.

Gotcha, I see Kettle Bells and anything and it gets my attention.

Then a partner even.  You Go, I Go for time.  7 Rounds of......

Yesterday (Thursday), I went 5 rounds on the heavy bag with 30 seconds breaks per round.  I did jumping jacks between rounds.  Then I took a 20 minute sauna.

*Shoulder press is were i put my feet on the bench and i form a V with my body, and i basically lower myself to the ground using my shoulders and push back up. Its a great body weight way to work the shoulders

 

Pilate Leg Lifts are alot of single leg lifts lying down that i learned from this workout class i am in. They work my gluts, hip abductor/adductors, and quads. If i had to recommend one for golf, check out Golfdigests friday fitness blog this week. They show the Alternating Lunges with the medicine ball, and the clam shell move. That is one of the moves i do with my leg lifts.

2.15 miles in 18:25
 
So I planned to do my LSD (4+ miles) today, but the wind was blowing really, really hard (warnings were in effect) and there's no way the wife and kid were going to do more than the 2.15 miles we did. Good for them.
 
I adjusted and rather than running at 10:00 (LSD pace) I tried to run them at my goal pace (9:00) or a little faster. Into the wind the first mile I got 4:24 and 4:23 800s. I closed with a pair of 4:19 800s downwind (there was some protection in parts, so it wasn't terrible).
 
I'm really happy with this run today. It didn't feel super stressful. I feel like I could have maintained this pace (8:39 or so) for a 5K.

Yesterday 03.02 I got my Super Slow workout in.  Today I hiked the North Menan Butte on the Snake River Plain.  It was cold, breezy, just enough snow on it to  make it slippery, and a nice hike.  After winter a hike like that is kind of like opening the windows to air out the house.

This week was ok.  I did 5.6 on monday, I ran 8.12 miles Wednesday.  Felt really good.  Came in right at 11 minute miles.  For me that is a good pace for a mid-length run.  Saterday, did 10.15 in 1:55.  Felt fine.  Had some tough climbs.  Overall a good workout.  Didn't do much else this week.  Got busy doing other stuff and pulled in different directions. 

 

This week is a big week. I have 15 for the long and 7 or 8 for the mid.  The short ones tues thursday will probably sub out and do something different.  Diet is still really hard for me.  Can seem to not eat bad or over eat on the weekends.
