Threshold Training Cycle – Microcycle 3 – Saturday
Run 10 miles
Plank for 8 min
This is the start of ramping up for long runs. Time to start getting back in the rhythm and practice for the race come February. Run at a conversational pace.
For the planks, try to stay up for the whole 8 minutes. Seem impossible? No, but you are free to rotate between front and side planks. The only catch is, that you have to do them in sequence and your side plank cannot be held for shorter time then the previous front plank. Example: 2 minute front plank, 1 minute side plank, 1 minute other side plank is good, but you could not follow that by a 30 second plank, it would have to be at least a minute.
