    Summer plan of 2014

    Goals.
    1500m in sub 4min
    800m in sub 1:55
    400m in sub 52

    Might even go to national masters ? I'll be 38 in Nov this yr.

    Plan is endurance long to short.
    So 1500m between now and Nov.
    Then 800m between Dec and March.

    Speed short to long. (Well speed endurance )
    Ie, 200m, 300m, 400m etc

    Just need to organize a racing schedule now.

    Should be coming into the most stable time, weather wise, in Hobart.

    I am thinking of doing the 60, 100, LJ, and Hammer.

    Thanks great to know.
    And being in Hobart - it's bound to be tons cooler than up here in Qld at that time of the year. I run the worst in the heat, it really effects my performances.

    There is a masters oceania comp in Melbourne, 1st week of Jan. - 95% i'll be there.

    There is a 1500m classic in Nov - buy i need to qualify for it, so need to find events leading into that
    I had a look, and there is a Masters worlds - would be great to go there too. Mostly on the basis it would look great on my Resume as a Personal trainer. But, that's happening now, next one is in like 2yrs time. So plenty of time for prep.

    Week just gone - 10 days ago a 3km road race with hill - in 30deg celcius heat... Heat stress then was sick all week, then by Fri i got conjunctivitis which has only just cleared up today (Tue)

    Still some some easier work volume wise, just faster.
    Ran on a crappy grass Park, a 24.9 200m, which is the fastest i've been in, well, yrs. To be honest - i really only ran the last 100m as the 1st 100m of the ground was pathetic.

    Also - over the last 5 x weeks - i've put on roughly 2-3kg. Of the exercises i've been doing, a bit more chin ups, but mostly been using Battling ropes.

    Re: heat. If it is hot it is generally a dry heat none of this humidity crap (Hobart is the 2nd driest capital city in Australia, but also the closest to the Antarctica)

    Re: Summer plan of 2014

    Thur = 18.5min of jogging and burpee's (like a recovery workout)

    Fri = 40min of 10 x 200m HILLS with 300m of jog recovery. Was a lot more painful than i imagined - had to hold back lunch a few times... roughly 2 - 2.5min for the jog recoveries and 39-46 sec for the reps. Pretty inconsistent times really. A nice challenging session.

    Sat = 12hrs after the finish of Fri workout - a solid warm up then a 1.21km loop time trial (road based with a little hill) 3min:43sec. = 6 sec of current lap best time. Followed by exercise circuits.

    Sun = 29min 5km recovery jog with avg heart rate of 115.

    Still seem to be suffering from conjunctivitis and finally seem to be over the laryngitis and sinus issues....

    Epsom salt baths seem to be going fantastic. Have one every 2-3 days now. Keep me very relaxed and calm. Have noticed, after about 1 x month of doing these, that my PH levels have even'ed right out. Barely get any movement from it now.
    Body weight levels have picked up from an even 69kg which i've been now for yrs - to hovering around 71-72kg. (looks like it's been all winter weight too - just did a body fat test - now up to 9.98% fat - up from 7% in march and 5% this time last year. Hmmm - mrs has been feeding me a lot of crap as of late... time to clean up "put some fat on, get sick..."

    Mon -

    Recovery run - 5km - 26min - avg heart rate 122.

    Tue -

    Off

    Wed -

    Really effected by sore burning eyes till around 1-2pm, then they seemed to come good.
    4:30pm, drove to training with the idea, if eyes could handle driving, I'll train, if not, i'll just coach.
    Ended up training :-)

    Goal, Fast 214m HILL sprints.
    1st = 32.2 = 0.8 P.B. = No more long ones today
    2nd = 12.7s = 92m Hill.

    Followed by 45min of circuits

    Thurs Morning - finally, eyes have settled down in the sunshine :-)
