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
