Default and now for today's

200mX8 sprints, work to rest ratio, 2:1

1. :35 5. :38
2. :34 6. :35
3. :36 7. :37
4. :36 8. :35

Not sure on the work rest ratio. I'm training for speed on long distance runs. Anyone with any ideas? Please chip in.

2X10
#55 weighted pull-ups
#55 weighted dips

Rest 1:00 mostly between these. Between 6 and 7 I took a 2:00 rest, then a 1:30 rest, then 1:15. Pull-ups became hard at the end and I would have to come off the bar after the first one. Kipped like a MF. Dips never bother me. Go figure.

Tonight:

5X100m pool sprints, rest :45 between sprints, 8X50m sprints, rest :20 between sprints.

Default Strange day

TSQ O-Course PT


The O-Course PT is designed to simulate running through the BUD/S O-Course and work the same major mucles groups. I recommend you do this PT at least once per week.

TSQ O-Course PT
Start- 20 Burpees
Parallel Bars- 20 dips + 5 Burpees
Tires- 25 Hops
Low Wall - 10 pull-ups + 5 Burpees
High Wall- 2 15 foot rope climbs + 5 Burpees
Barbed Wire- 20 Pushups + 5 Burpees
Cargo Net- 5 15 foot rope climbs + 5 Burpees
Balance Logs- 50 squats + 5 Burpees
Hooyah Logs- 10 Lunges + 5 Burpees
Transfer Rope- 2 15 foot rope climbs + 5 Burpees
Dirty Name- 20 Jumping Squats + 5 Burpees
Hooyah Logs- 10 Split Squats + 5 Burpees
Weaver- 30 Rotation Pushups + 5 Burpees
Burma Bridge- 10 Towel Pullups + 20 Walking Lunges + 5 Pullups (lower your body 30 secs each) + 5 Burpees
Hooyah Logs- 10 Step ups 24 inch box + 5 Burpees
Tower + Slide for Life- 25 Knees to Elbows + 5 15 foot rope climbs + 5 Burpees
Rope Swing + Monkey Bars- Hang from rope 30 Secs + Hang from bar 60 secs while swinging and alternating grip + 5 Burpees
Tires- 25 Hops + 5 Burpees
Incline Wall- 15 Dips + 5 Burpees
Spider Wall- 20 Pullups + 25 Squats + 5 Burpees
Vaults- 20 Dips + 25 Squats
Sprint to Finish 50 yard sprint
O-Course Pushups- 50 Pushups

I did this in 1 hour 12 minutes and 34 seconds. Yes that's right. I was being a little bitch, not digging in, and burping up lunch.

I am going to start doing tough WODs on Thursdays. This means "Murph," "Linda," "Filthy 50," and "Fight Gone Bads." I need these gut checks.

I am also dropping the Thursday usual of max rope climbs in 2 minutes and replacing it with weighted rope climbs a la' the Mass Gain strength meso cycle 2X10.

That's all for now. Good to get ego check.

Oh yeah and in case you were wondering:

The O Course

Define 'speed on long distance runs' for me? Are you talking about 5K runs, 10k or 20k+ runs? If your goals are distances longer than 5k I would rather look into some lactate threshold runs, for example cruise intervals, i.e. several intervals from 800m to 1500m with lactate threshold speed T (comfortably hard running, ~30sec per mile slower than your current best 5k time) with 1min recovery jogs inbetween, or the time proven tempo run: 10 min jogging, 20min at steady T speed, followed by a 10 min cool-down jog and perhaps a couple of strides. Both are battle proven and from Jack Daniels, one of the greatest if not the greatest long distance running coaches.

I had my "deloading" week last week. Hence the silence.

Today I did-


5 minutes on, 1 minute off, 42 min

I ran all over town on this one. Probably got 4-5 miles.


1600m with fins, CSS.

28:22

My calf got a terrible cramp. I just kept going.




10X20 PUSHUPS
10X25 SITUPS
4X10 PULL UPS
10X15 DIPS

Pool time-

3X100m sprints, rest :30 between sprints. 4X50m sprints, rest :15 between sprints.

Untimed. Need to work on form. It breaks down when I want to go fast.


2X10 Pull-ups, #55
2X10 Dips, #55

These felt good.

400mX6 running sprints

1. 1:28 4. 1:29
2. 1:26 5. 1:30
3. 1:27 6. 1:29

I've done better on this workout before in a fresher state. I put everything I had out on this one I could. That is good enough for me.
