Today was Vertical Plyo where you push your jumping ability to the maximum. This is a sweat-maker workout if there ever was one. The hope here is that the workout will train my legs to spring better while I run. Tomorrow is a day off. After this workout, I’ll be happy with a slow bike ride for some active recovery before Saturday’s Race The Big Rock Triathlon at Lake Perris, CA ! See you there!
Today’s workout was a distance runner’s nightmare (well at least this distance runner) – Asylum Vol. 1 – Vertical Plyo. Plyo is short for Plyometrics, which is short for jump, jump, sweat, jump, sweat, jump, sweat, jump, oh and jump some more after you do these push-ups in a pool of sweat. The only good thing about this workout, is it is only about 40 minutes including the warm-up, stretching, and post workout stretching. That is actually not true (the only good thing is” part), this workout is actually quite perfect because it helps to improve an athlete’s ability to drive and get those knees up. Extremely useful in my sport for hill climbing in both the bike and the run.
Tomorrow is a scheduled rest day. Maybe I’ll get a swim in? OR if I am lucky, maybe a ride? I have not ridden my bike since a couple days after the Bakersfield Triathlon. I am going to have to remedy that soon. For sure next week!
