**End of Week Training Recap #1
** As a flatlander LEO who works rotating days/nights shift work, I’m going to end up having to get as creative as possible with some of the training for the 2018 Bigfoot 200. I won’t outline the specific workouts but simply an overview of some of the things done. I can promise the volume will be lower than you’d expect for a 200 like race.
The past few months have been focused on just maintaining my aerobic base, slowly adding some mileage, getting as healthy as possible and maintaining my strength levels. The training rotation will rely on a 2 week on/1 week deload rotation used heavily by @briancarroll1020life
, as well as other training concepts/direction by fellow competitors and great friends @tony_cowden
This week was the first week of true focus on the race. Volume was 25 miles of running or rucking, utilizing intervals, tempo runs, as well as simply time on my feet with @rick_cheek
. I spent some time on an Arc Trainer and stairmill, both of which will become a regular part of my training. I also utilized a stationary bike which will also be used more to create fatigue without the added wear and tear. Over the next several months my volume will increase, and I’ll be doing more day trips for extended distance hiking in the foothills of North Carolina. Looking forward to tackling this thing the best way I can. #barsandbullets #capable #trooper #northcarolina #bluelineathletics #bigfoot200 #keephammering @destinationtrailraces @altrarunning @bluelineathletics @hardtokill_fitness @runners_of_insta @trailrunnernation @nc_highway_patrol @cameronrhanes
