Workouts for 6/11 – 6/17

Bruce enjoying some time on everyone’s favorite machine!

Friday AM Trail Run: We meet at 6AM outside in front of 38 Curtis Street, Rockport. Pace is super casual conversational (11 min miles) and the distance is usually 3 miles. We are generally back to the cars around 7/7:15AM. We end at the quarry for those that want to jump in!

Blackburn Registration is Live! Are you looking for a pretty epic challenge that is unique to Cape Ann? Do you have working arms? A human powered sea going vessel?  Look no further.

Coaches Choice…but generally a longer effort more geared toward the cardiovascular fitness spectrum.

Sunday 6/17

30 Min Ascending Ladder 1-2-3-4-5 +
Renegade Man Makers
Strict Pull/Chin-ups/ Ring Rows
Cals x 5 (players choice of machine)

GET OUTSIDE! Go do something active for 30-60+ mins at at moderate pace preferably with friends or family. (hike, jog, paddle, row, bike etc.) What you do matters less than just doing the duration at a conversational pace.  A few of these easy sessions per week can really enhance your cardiovascular base which can help with both high intensity performance & recovery.

Mental Restoration: Carve a little time today (but really everyday) to slow down and prep for next week. Plan Meals, stretch out, meditate? Set yourself up for success cause those that fail to plan are planning to fail.

Recovery WOD
“Around the World” for  3-5 Rounds
3 Min Row
3 Min Ski
3 Min Airdyne
3 Min Yoga Flow

Why are these workouts important? These should be easy efforts. Fully conversational or nose breathing only pace (which is REALLY SLOW!) Get blood flowing, flush out soreness and prep the body for the next harder session.
