South Bank Runners,

We’re approaching the highest mileage on your long runs. How are you feeling? Continue to play with your nutrition and clothing on your long runs so that you have the perfect plan for whatever mother nature delivers on race day.

  • Make sure to MAINTAIN GOOD HYDRATION during the week and not just for long runs. Its easy to get busy and go all day without drinking water. I suggest that you carry a bottle with you all day long and drink it.
  • The holidays ARE HERE! Remember your goal and DO NOT OVER INDULGE. Running really S*%#s with a hangover. (from alcohol or food)
  • Try not to get sick. Be mindful of crowds and wash your hands very often. At the VERY FIRST signs of a cold…ZYCAM works like magic to ward it off. You may want to purchase some to have ready. 

Week 9:

Monday: CrossFit only

Tuesday: CrossFit only

Wednesday: CrossFit only

Thursday: One hour run @ 70% (Run at a pace that feels good.)

Friday: CrossFit only

Saturday / Sunday: REST one day and Run the other day for 90 minutes @ 70%. (Stay at a comfortable pace but try your best NOT to WALK.)

The Calvary TURKEY TROT is a great 5K and you can do that on Thursday and just add to it before or after. 

Happy Thanksgiving! You guys are doing so well! Keep it up!

This Saturday Coach Cody will be covering for coach Jeff during barbell club. The focus today is on strength gains that will benefit the Olympic Lifts. To that end we will take a short hiatus from the snatch and clean and jerk today. The training today is no less important but it’s not quite as sexy as hitting a PR Clean! Do work!

A. Front Squat
3×3
Heavy as it goes with proper lumbar maintained

B. Push Press
3×3
No failed sets. Work up to a heavy set of 3 and be done!

C. Back Squat
3×3
Same as Front Squat and no it’s not ridiculous to do front and back squat on the same day!

Barbell Club Participants,

The last few Saturdays have been awesome. Thank you to all those who have come out to Barbell Club. Moving forward I will post the Saturday workout later in the week.

If you are interested in doing extra Olympic Lifting work during the week please contact me and I will write you a personalized plan.

Also of note I will have some time off in December so look for extra Barbell Club sessions for the holidays!
