Non Perfect Totals
Weekly Totals. I keep forgetting to include these :)
Hangovers suck. That missed ride on Sunday puts a big ding in the number of training hours. These numbers look sad with such a low total. Even worse is that it would have been an absolutely PERFECT 3 weeks had I not messed it up. Tis' the season I guess. I was looking forward to that xmas party and really enjoyed it so I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself.
I hereby declare the rest of the year to be ALCOHOL FREE. Ok, who am I kidding - I will make an exception for Training Payne's Kona Partayyyy!
Up next: Recovery week. I failed miserably on the last one. It went from active recovery, to non-active recovery to non-recovery to you-phat-oinker-you-just-sabatoged-a-month-of-training-by-eating-like-that!
So suffice to say, I have some room for improvment. Lots of room.
The JPO program says that recovery week is 50-80% duration of a normal workout at no more than 65% perceived exertion(PE). I am to enjoy myself at all costs. I took complete days off last time which was a big no-no. I slacked bigtime and threw a wrench into the routine. I must maintain the routine. So much as a single missed day and it's sooo hard to get back into it. Hence the fallout from Sunday's hangover. I'm still struggling with that.
