Spring has sprung and so have the goals. Outdoor track season is on the horizon and the training has begun. the focus this year aerobic best training and olympic lifting.
Aerobic best a Lydiard system or maximum aerobic function MAF a Phil Maffetone system, very similar approaches and I'm on board, I refer to them as aerobic tempo runs maximizing technique, pace and mental clarity at my maximum aerobic heart rate of 129 or 180 - age.
Olympic lifting, well I love olympic lifting, so I have decided to make it my focus with daily lifting working on technique and form. I have tried a number of approaches to strength training and olympic lifting is the one that appeals to me the most and I throughly enjoy the process and the technique aspect.
The aerobic best runs are short, focused and the olympic lifting sessions are light, working with the bar only, lasting 20 to 40 minutes with warm up and cool down lifts.
Training and racing, it kind of fun, like so much fun!
