My new training chart

MY NEW TRAINING CHART

We all know that training is important, which is why I have developed this new training regimen.

It shows pie slices eaten vs days.

I have obviously allowed for recovery days.

How can I improve my pie eating training?

Does Friel have a chapter on this?

I don't see any intervals in there. If you want to build your pie-eating capacity, at least once or twice a week you'll probably want to take a couple of slices with ice cream on the same day. Eat one as fast as you can, then rest for 30 minutes, then eat the other one as fast as you can.

If you do it right, you should feel a little nauseous at the end of the workout. You may also want to take the following day off to recover.

I think the recovery days should be pie without the ice cream.

Would this look better on a PIE chart?

Intervals would be eating parts of the pie times the # of pieces with 30 min naps between each feeding.

You could also add "active recovery days" where you would only eat 1/2 of a pie at a slow steady pace.

I think I am graphically challenged!!

Anybody got a training regimen on how to do graphs showing intervals?

Does Friel have a chapter on this?

Sorry. Joe Friel uses ice cream instead of pie, so that's what I do.

I agree.

He shouldn't completely shut down on his recovery days.

Or at least he should be eating custard or pudding on those days. Or just the ice cream.
