...consider binning the gym and cross training?
Just a thought...
Some of it I think is necessary (prehab stuff), some of it feels like it does benefit (cross-training on the next workout after a session, especially swimming after a long run), and the rest is a speculative training strategy. I'll go with it, is my guess, until leave ends and real world time constraints resume.
Its impressive that u can put XT in front of running. I always plan to, but when it comes down to it, I'd sooner be running if I can
No I have the same view. It's a matter of my diminished capacity to recover. Doing more runs means the extra runs are terrible and I'm tired for the sessions. Doing XT training gives some aerobic work whilst allowing recovery between sessions. Maybe as I get fitter my capacity to recovery will improve and I'll be able to up the running volume, but I worry that this is an aged related degradation. Not that I'm throwing in the towel juts yet!
