Another question that kind of goes along with this – should I be counting the core and strength workouts into Z1 volume? i.e. if the book calls for 2 circuits of the general strength routine and 1 circuit takes 10 minutes to complete, should I log that as 20 minutes of Z1 volume?
I’ve read through TftNA as well as the training log book and am excited to get started. I’m using 250 hours as a guideline for my “previous year” annual training volume as suggested in the book. Following the Transition Period volume guidelines:
50% of previous year average weekly = 2.4 hrs
“One long Zone 1 aerobic workout each week. Should leave you tired from the duration, not the intensity. This one workout should be 25 percent of the weekly aerobic training volume. = 0.6 hrs.
I don’t understand how a 36 minute Z1 workout could leave me tired from the duration. Should the volume for the transition period really be this low? I guess I’m just looking for a sanity check before I plan everything out.
