All About That Base
January is a great time to start building that base of endurance back up. Pull out the old heart rate monitor this week plus keep on track with your nutrition.
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Clean Eating Continues. Similar to our theme the last two weeks. Stay with your clean eating principles this week. Lots of fruits and vegies and clean protein. Keep your food organice and free of hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics. Avoid processed starches and sugar.
2. Build The Base. January is a great time to work on building your aerobic base. Make sure your endurance workouts are at least 30 minutes in duration. Bust out the old heart rate monitor to help make sure your heart rate does not elevate too high. Building aerobic base requires consistency of training for several weeks at lower to moderate heart rates. It allows for cardiovascular and cellular adaptations to occur to facilitate the transport of oxygen and removal of CO2 during workouts. Building a good base in January will be helpful for your endurance goals later in the year!
