Part 1 x 3 sets
Part 2 x 3 sets
Cant believe I forgot about the HIIT workout completed the morning before an event, the reminder always comes in when I have set up and the muscles are tight from the previous workout. But is this is my head or does this really make a difference. I find that the body is a complicated matter and I do wonder if I actually eased off the training that I would actually perform better at an event, but the only way of doing this is to actually test and test it probably by doing exactly the same things for a week including food and exercise minus the day before session and then doing the same course and testing the times. I am not sure that this is ever really going to happen, so I have to judge on the now.
My usual argument is that marine and army training is done daily, there is no give if your muscles are hurting or your tired. You just need to get on and do it, I suppose I have adopted this attitude from my dad, a former royal marine. There is no point winging and moaning about it, you just need to get on and do it.
Although I do think it is a number of things that you need to consider in your overall fitness abilities and skills, including of course fitness, diet, health and mentality. Having the belief, skill and strength in order to give 110%. Age could be another additional factor, I do wonder if we got into this 10 years ago, that we could have been so much stronger and fitter.
To continue on with what I was doing, the Friday morning workout consisted of:
Keeping you posted on the OCR (Obstacle Course Racing) journey. Letting you know about courses, events and general health and fitness.
