We're kicking off a new question in our Q&A series. This time we asked the team, "What's your favorite workouts for each discipline?" Matt Inch starts us off:
SWIM: Picking my favorite swim workout was pretty easy. Growing up as a swimmer, I have had the luxury of having many coaches with many different training philosophies which in turn provides many different workouts. My favorite of all time is 10 x 200. Back in my prime in high school I could hold a 2:20 interval, coming in between 2:05-2:10 for each 200, but as I aged and picked up two other sports to train for, my interval has gone up a little bit, but could probably still hold 2:40-2:45. Maybe it’s time to give this workout a go!
RUN: Similar to biking (minus the video games) I have had a lot of coaches with lots of workouts to choose from, but there is nothing better in my mind than repeat miles at the track. Anywhere from 3-7 of them with an 800 easy recovery jog between. Repeat miles are grueling but so rewarding in my eyes. Especially because I am constantly converting all my runs into my min/mile pace. So what’s better than to see your true min/mile pace than run hard miles on the track. Bring it on!
Enjoy, and let me know how these workouts rank on your all-time favorites!
