Week of 3/19/22: Workouts this week, but no SAT HR/XT/ Loaded Carries/Sprints/Trap Bar DL this week.

Hi Folks,

I will be updating all week because it looks like I’ll have many interruptions on Monday and Tuesday.

NOTE: I will NOT have the Saturday HR/XT/LOADED CARRIES/SPRINTS workout on 3/19/22 due to four of us going to the KB 101 Workshop early that morning in Oakland.

Those of you preparing for the Dipsea Race the second weekend in June ( back to its usual date on the Calendar; coming up quickly) may want to run to top of Dynamite, or the entrance of the Rain Forest and back as a first venture on the course, and to test what shape you legs are in! The other suggestion is to get in the RRGrade course at a very steady pace with the option to Double Bow Knot, or West Point Inn, and back. The uphill course done at a “comfortably stressed” push will accelerate your fitness for the Dipsea and road races.

During April and May I suggest running 2-3, 5K races to build your fitness for that hard push that the Dipsea requires; yet won’t require much recovery time.

3/15/22 TUESDAY. TEMPO run. After the warm-up mile or so, get in 3 x 6′ Tempo with 3′ easy running between each 6′ Tempo pick-up. Maintain 10K race pace effort for each tempo portion.

3/16/22 WEDNESDAY. STRENG TRAINING CIRCUIT and Trap Bar Deadlifts. 8:15 am at Warren’s gym.
