So i’m trying to find the best way to fit Core n General Strength, ME WORKOUT and Hill Sprints into the early base period. The previous week i did the ME workout on Thursday PM as mentioned in the early based period figure 13.1 on page 347. The core and general strength i did on Tuesday PM. I was really sore from the ME gym workout even though i did 3 sets x 10 reps for each exercise. Despite from being sore i did the Hill Sprints on Friday Am. 4 x 10 sec steep stair reps instead of 6-8.
This week i started with
Total Distance 57km
day1: Off day
day2: am 15% of total distance with flat strides p.m General Strength n Core
My thoughts for the rest of the week are:
day3: a.m 20% of total distance (medium/long run)
day4: 10-15% of total distance a.m Hill Sprints 6-8 HOURS Later p.m ME – Gym Based workout
day5: a.m 10% of total distance-time (recovery)
day6: 15% of total distance
day7: 25-35% of total distance
The reason i thought of this is to leave more space between the ME workout and Sundays longest run. Of course i understand that day4 now will be a really hard day by combining the two workouts. But by leaving one easy day and one shorter run before the long on Sunday, i think there can be enough time to recover.
I would really appreciate any thoughts on this. Thank you
