Anatomy of a Focus Shift

9/27/2007 - By Zach Caldwell

In the past several posts I’ve made reference to a change in the focus of Kris’s training in the current block. As this block comes to an end (the last session is on Friday) we get an opportunity to make some quantitative comparisons.,

Pretty Good

9/25/2007 - By Zach Caldwell

Well, Kris is now the second-fastest guy on record up mt Moosilauke. Except that he’s not on-record. He’d have to show-up when Ruff and Cami are actually timing the event in order to go on-record. And that may be on the agenda for this Fall...,

Mixed Signals

Because we know from experience that heart rate suppression accompanies high training loads under a volume regime we have to acknowledge the possibility that Kris is feeling the stress of a high training load.

Not Blazing Fast

9/18/2007 - By Zach Caldwell

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Kris has not been feeling too snappy of late. As he put it, ' I’ve been dragging ass all week, aside from Wednesday'.,

Changing Gears

9/17/2007 - By Zach Caldwell

This past week has been Kris’s first week of training with the focus firmly placed on intensity rather than volume. Having said that, there’s hasn’t been a particularly large amount of intensity this week - it’s been more of a ramp-up into training week.,

9/11/2007 - By Zach Caldwell

This past training block is the biggest Kris has ever done. He’s been in the territory before, but 92 hours in 20 days (4.6 hours per day) is the largest average training volume he’s got on record. But that’s pretty tame compared to the last two weeks...,
