Training Schedule September 13th - September 19th

So, four weeks until the Warrior Dash.  Truth is, its not that far of a run.  But, we still have train with some distance if you aren't used to running.  Regular runners, you just need to do some pullups. 

If we were training for a longer distance, a 10K, half marathon, or marathon, we would phasing out the heavy weight training and doing some maintenance strength and power training with bodyweight, light implements, and/or plyometrics (jump training).  But, this is a short distance and its not worth detraining all of our strength just to run three miles.

And so, we continue to lift.  I wouldn't lift heavy a day or two before the actual race just because running with DOMS is not fun, but there's no need to give things up entirely.
