    Re: faster the athlete.....

    i read an interesting article claiming that being on your feet after workout (aka walking around[especially in nature], or working) COULD be the best thing for recovery after intense workouts... the article claimed that walking stimulates whole body blood circulation without straining the body/heart...

    so if you workout in the morning and have a afternoon/evening part time job where you are on your feet, you are actually accelerating recovery and making money

    i was thinking to do it this way:

    Monday: intense training + 4 hours work
    Tuesday: tempo+ 4- 8 hours of work OR just work for 8- 12 hours (without tempo!)
    Wednesday: intense training + 4 hours work
    Thursday: OFF + 8- 12 hours work
    Friday: intense training + 4 hours work
    Saturday: tempo+ 4- 8 hours of work OR just work for 8- 12 hours (without tempo!)
    Sunday: TOTAL OFF/REST

    What do you folks think?

    I was wondering if being on feet alone on easy(tempo days) days can replace tempo for recovery purposes ...basically can I just work and not do tempo and still recover like with tempo training?
