The time change is going to kill me. Getting up at 3AM is a lot harder than getting up at 4AM, but it is really now 4AM and not 3AM so I shouldn’t be complaining – but I am – V02 training 3AM is just wrong.
My V02 class is ending next week. It has been a great experience and my cardio level has increased tremendously, but I am still indecisive about taking it again, doing a partial class or not doing it at all. The class is very intense, but only lasts an hour and I usually and only able to get 4-5 miles in on the treadmill because of the incline being on level 12!! I still have not learned to love level 12 – I doubt I ever will. I am considering sticking with the strength training portion of the program and opting for longer runs two days a week – around 8-10 miles. What do you think? Are more miles better than harder intensity?
(edit to above: for those who don’t know – I’m training for San Diego marathon June 4 – still doing long runs on weekends, 2x week strenght and speed 1 x per week)
