The Week That Was

Monday: upper body (+ minor legs) weights + 20 minute treadmill run (zone 2)
Tuesday: spinning intervals (set of 8 - last one sub-par with incipient calf cramping)
Wednesday: 1.0hr. run (zone 2/zone 3 on RPE)
Friday: upper body (+ minor legs) weights
Saturday: 2.0hr. treadmill run (zone 2)
Sunday: upper body (+ minor legs) weights

Back at it after the previous travel week. Shuffled Monday and Tuesday due to travel fatigue - didn't feel willing to do spinning intervals on Monday. Should add calf stretching, and may need to be more careful to fully hydrate on morning of intervals day.

Put the long treadmill run up to 2.0hr.; soft tissues were OK at 1.75hr. so didn't feel too aggressive. No noticeable issues on Saturday or Sunday. Looking to add some more zone 2 running and perhaps some zone 1 spinning over the next couple of months, but will hold steady on running duration.

Travel notwithstanding, I expect that eventually this will get me to reasonable general fitness, good body composition, and acceptable positioning to start specific training for something longer than a half-marathon running event.

I don't know how you run on a treadmill for 2 hours. I'd go nuts!
