IMCDA week three training plan

The weeks seem to be flying by! Week three will look a little different given Thanksgiving and a test on Saturday to determine our lactate threshold and heart rate zones. So some of the plans towards the end of the week might be a little up in the air.

Monday: 90 min yoga and hip strengthening exercises
Tuesday: am: 60 min strength pm: Interval Run
Wednesday: 90 min spin class and 60 min palates
Thursday: 10k race
Friday: 2000m swim
Saturday: LT test and hopefully a 3 hour ride but if my legs are too beat up from the test then 75 min trainer ride
Sunday: 10 mile endurance run

That’s it for this week next week the focus is rest. Charley has us cycling in 3 weeks of building and then one week of recovery. I have heard of cycling training like this before but never been disciplined enough to do it. I guess that’s why I am paying Charley to make me do it!

Some of you may have seen this but if you haven’t you have to check this out. Kara Goucher and her husband have put out these short videos about their lives and it’s really fun to see how professional runners live. It’s another great way to waste time!
