Work (when training) actually WORKS

Work WORKS

You have a secret. You love your job, the experience, your co-workers, etc., but you know you can get it all done in six hours a day. Or three. Problem is, The Man won’t let you. You gotta punch the clock, have to show up between 9-5, do the commute thing, etc.

Unfortunately for you, your boss isn’t interested in the outcomes of your work as much as the inputs. There’s a direct assumption that if you work 40+ hours a week, you will be a productive, informed, and all-round good employee. So you follow the rules and toe the line, but deep down you still think about your little secret.

It can be enlightening to read how a real athlete trains. The following is by Justin Daerr, an age-group triathlete. In the 2004 Hawaii Ironman he was the first American amateur in only his third Ironman-distance race.
——————————————————————————–

Throughout the triathlon season my training schedule is continually changing. During the early part of the year my coach, Joe Friel, and I focus more on strength training and skills. I still spend a fair amount of time on the road, on the trails, and in the pool, but the overall intensity of the sessions is low.

After a solid strength foundation has been established I begin to ramp up the volume of my training along with the intensity. During this base period of training I am swimming, biking and running nearly twice as much as in the previous prep period. Strength training is no longer the primary focus, but is instead put into a maintenance mode. Aerobic volume has now become the number one priority.

The base period of my training ended this year before I headed off to Boulder, Colorado, on Memorial Day weekend. Throughout this summer I have been incorporating more challenging sessions that revolve around race-specific intensity.

No week looks identical to the last, but the following weekly schedule is fairly close to what you might see me doing during the 2005 summer in Boulder.
