Opinions on training schedule, please! Running/Riding
Hey BFers. I'm trying to rebuild my running base while at the same time getting fitter on the bike. Running I don't care about getting faster/better, I just want a slow steady base built up for the fall/winter, when I will transition into more running.
20 miles a week for running is my goal.
I work M, W, F, from 10-7, Saturdays 9-6, Tuesdays 10-5, Fridays and Sundays off.
Here is a tentative schedule:
T: AM Jog of 3.5
PM B+ group ride at 6pm, 35-40 miles at 19-21 ave (though this will get faster/longer over the summer)
W: AM Easy spin of 20/25 miles
PM jog of 3.5
Th: AM laps/intervals 30 miles or so
F: AM Long run (10-14 miles)
PM I lead a beginner C ride (15mph ave) at 6pm for 25 miles or so
Sat: AM Sustained effort ride of 25/30 miles (solo 18mph ave hopefully)
Sunday: This is my day for a looong bike ride, length more important than speed (60-100 miles)
Too much? Do I have things spaced out evenly enough that with proper nutrition and fueling I can make this happen? I feel like Friday may be too much before Saturday and Sunday, but then again, it's not like I'm running fast at ALL (10/11 minute mile).
