My training progress last week’s target: 70k achieved: 87k year total to date: 3,674k in 49 weeks this week’s target: 70k weight: 66kg ▼ song of the week: “Unforgetful You”, by Jars of Clay, from "If I Left the Zoo”. "You never minded calling me a child Well, i guess that's how i acted all the while But you live through every tantrum You see through every lie Though they seem to be more common I just wanted to know why"..
My targets for 2008. The following races are penciled in as "flat-out": 03 January 3000m track 10 January 3000m track 17 January 3000m track 23 January BBQ Stakes 6k 27 January Campbell Park 3k 31 January 3000m track 07 February 3000m track 12 February 5k Stromlo 14 February 3000m track 21 February 10,000m track (first important race) 28 February 3000m track 04 March Molonglo Reach 6k 13 March 5000m ACTVAC championships 21 March 10,000m AMA championships 23 March 5000m AMA championships 08 April Canberra Marathon (not too fast!) 18 May Canberra Half Marathon(first M60 race)
If I keep to the plan, anything else I run up to 18 May would at best be a "tempo run".
Training sessions at Parliament House December/January. 10 December a repeat of last week's session 17 December no training, group dinner 24 December no training, Christmas Eve! 31 December no training, New Years Eve! 7 January start of 4-5 weeks of anaerobic training: I have mapped all training sessions I expect to be conducting in 2008, and the only anaerobic work scheduled for Parliament House during the year will be in January through to mid February. Training sessions at Stromlo Forest Park, Saturday mornings, 9am. This is the perfect venue for a range of interval training sessions, and the perfect surface for minimising injury while developing speed and strength. 15 December 3x1k 22 December 3x1k 29 December 3x1k 5 January 3x1k 12 January 3x1k and so on into mid February. As perfect as the venue is, I still have a wish list: It would be nice to have some trees/shade, none of those pesky flies, an underpass to the grass circuit so we don't get collected by cyclists, and a hitching rail or at least a seat for hamstring stretches.
