Health Blogarithm for 20th of December 2009

You can't train hard all the time.

I was tired today. Could only manage 30 minutes on the stepper with the heart rate just over 100 - hardly tricking over, but after the two previous day's workouts of 140BPM for over and hour each day, there wasn't much left in the tank.

Coupled with the 40 minute walk all up a miserly 70 Aerabytes.

Good news though. We had a street party at our place and recruited two new blokes for the morning walk, another Peter and Noel.

Didn't over do it in the horses douvers: weight 85.6Kg

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned, and keep in mind your body needs a rest now and then.

  1. So true John, periodization is the way to train with periods during the year of relative rest, base building and then finally peaking to prepare for important events. I might was plug my new book at this point which can be seen on its website of www.brokennecktobrokenrecords.com The book is entitled, "From Broken Neck to Broken Records, a Masters Cyclist's Guide to Winning."

    It tells the story of my comeback from a near catestrophic accident suffered during a bicycle race in which I broke my neck - a C1 cervical vertebra fracture. The rarest, and probably most deadly of all neck fracture. The second half deals with subjects of planning, training, racing (for those so inclined), with chapters on nutrition, weight training, medical discussions relevant to older athletes, and various anecdotes.
