Training for the Festival Races

Pauline's put together a training schedule to get us into the best possible condition before the races on the 18th. Each week calls for some work on our own during non-boat days and also builds in some rest days.

Here's the schedule for this week (edited to reflect schedule for week of September 6th):

Monday (Labor Day): starts; 2 sets of pyramids with power-10s strategically placed throughout (70% intensity on the water); followed by weights work (in the boat house if we can get in, otherwise please do 3x15 with your weights at home)
Tuesday: 30-60 minutes of workout on your own (50% intensity)
Wednesday (practice at 6:00 PM: starts; 10 sets of 30 on/offs, then 10 sets of 15 on/offs-- in the boat at 80%; followed by ab work (2 sets of 8 exercises)
Thursday: work out on your own -- 50% intensity, 45-60 mins.
Friday: rest day
Saturday: starts; 100% intensity race pieces on the water -- 3 500s -- followed by circuit work

Sorry I will not be able to make this Saturday's practice. I have to go to New York to take my daughter back to school. Will be back by Monday practice (which I am assuming is still on despite holiday)

Next Wednesday (September 8th), the Venture Outdoors group has both boats starting at 7 PM. We'll start Paddlefish practice that night at 6 PM, arranging it so that we swing by the dock again at 6:30 sharp to pick up anyone who wasn't able to hop aboard at 6.

Please try to come for the 6:00 start time if you can -- that will give us an hour to get in a paddling workout before moving inside for weights or abs or circuits (if it's Wednesday it must be.......).
