Training Schedules!

Not much time for a very long post this morning! About to go write exams but i figured I would write down my weekly routine and see if I can get some comments from people who know better.

At the moment it looks like this

Mondays - Weight Training as well as a 1mile run
Tuesdays - Interval Run training .. 45 minutes to an hour
Wednesday - Swims 1 hour probably about 4km
Thursday - Endurance Run and a short bike.. run for an hour 20, bike for 20 minutes
Friday- Swim again 1 hour
Saturday - Long bike and short Run
Sunday - probably a break day

This is a pretty basic breakdown, quantities aren't very much.. hopefully this will go up as I get into better shape. My interval run yesterday was a lot easier than i thought it was going to be. I went 5.5 miles in 50 minutes. Pacing 5 minutes at 6mph, 10 minutes at 6.5mph 15 and 7.5 and 15 at 7 with a 5 minute cool down. Next time Im going to try for 6.5 7 8 7.5 cool down.

Wish me luck! Have a great day to everyone who reads this! I know I sure will.. kick off the day with a bowl of cheerios and a FInance Exam!


  1. Sounds like a good workout routine, good luck with your exam!

  2. Get some vector cereal, no the beat tasting but its really good for you
    Good luck on your exam

  3. Lots of cardio in your workout week, try adding some lower intensity stuff to target fat cells. I would also do more weight training, all that cardio seems to be useless if you're not increasing distances/speed,
    Also, I prefer to start my day with oats and vitamins/fish oils; great source of fiber, and it keeps you full longer. Maybe have some cheerios mixed in....
    O_O that's a good idea lol.

  4. @ Squirlmaster I agree with what you are saying. I try and get in 1 cup of oats a day with a little brown sugar! Oats are the best! As far as the cardio goes I try and increase my distance and speed almost every week. Once weekly I work on increased speed by making my interval runs faster. I also increase distance on my endurance runs as often as I can. Sometimes I increase the speed of my endurance runs too! I really should throw in another weights session per week, sometimes i just don't have time :(
