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?
Beginner Questions on Transition Period Volumes
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.
