June Training Log- Lindsey’s Crazy 48 hour goal

posted on June 28, 2019

Lindsey’s Training Log


We recently had the “goal-setting conversation” as a staff – something we hadn’t done for a long time. Coming up with work-related goals was easy (there are a lot of things I’m excited to get under way in order to make UF a more efficient place) and I already knew I had the general goal of prioritizing getting my health back in order, but I didn’t have anything specific down for training. 


I haven’t done a meet since early 2018, but I’ve been starting to get the itch. I’ve also been really enjoying running again. So naturally, I found a goal that would let me do both! 


End of 2019 Training Goal:  compete in both a powerlifting meet AND run a half marathon… in 48 hours.


Is this a ridiculous goal? Hell yes. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone that isn’t a little crazy. But it’s what I have my heart set on. It’s also secretly something I’ve been thinking about for the past 5 or so years, and I think now is the time to make it happen.


I do have some specific numbers in mind for both events, but I’m not getting attached to them. Just getting through both events is the primary aim on my first go at this. 


I do have a race on my calendar for September, but I’m looking at that as a tune-up and something I’m doing mostly for fun. My hope is to do this in November – I have two options for meets, but will have fewer options for real races. I may need to do the run solo, just using the official Pittsburgh Half course.


Training adjustments


My training structure hasn’t changed all that much, just targeting my runs a little bit more. I do all of my strength training during the week, focusing on my heaviest work early in the week, so I can save energy for weekend runs. 


Monday – Heavy Bench variation, heavy on the upper body assistance work, maybe some elliptical work

Tuesday – Heavy Squat variation, focus on single leg squat variants for assistance, hard interval run in the evening

Wednesday – REST, mobility, but nothing hard

Thursday – Upper Body Hypertrophy day, with a focus on DB Bench variations and some vanity lifting, followed by a tempo run in the evening

Friday – Deadlift, low volume but high intensity pulls, followed by explosive lower body work

Saturday – Long Run!

Sunday – Recovery run or complete rest
