I struggled with how to count strength training time during my first couple training cycles. When planning this third cycle, I realized that the histograms in TFTNA’s “Planning Your Training” chapter show total training for the week and the proportion of that week that belong to each type of workout, including strength. I think the ratios are working for me because, as uphill athletes, we are all too prone to focusing on mountain time at the expense of arriving rested, strong, and psyched to gym workouts. In short, those ratios have kept me proportionally focused on strength training, which I’m hopeful will pay dividends for a spring peak.
I’d love to hear a Scott or Steve reply to this to see if I’m on track. Thanks for posting.
