It is the season for the cold, or at least in the norther hemisphere.

I don't have a race until May so everything right now is just kind of off season maintenance so starting up in up in a few weeks doesn't completely suck. That said, I have really enjoyed running a lot lately and am currently looking forward to doing more.

The gym I go to has a set workout per day with lifting being on Mon Weds Fri. The options are a total body or a three day split. I currently follow the split which breaks down to Chest Shoulders Triceps/Legs/Back and Biceps. On Mondays and Fridays it is pretty standard we will do between 4 or 5 rounds with the reps being 5, 10 or 12-10-8-6. On Wednesday it higher rep and usually in the form of an AMRAP. The splits alternate so that each muscle group lands on a Wednesday at least once a month.

That was a little long winded but that is the best I can do for an explanation. I will continue with the split until I set my base for triathlon season and then switch to the total body when I start working on more speed related work.
