Additional Comments:
Note that the Anaerobic work has been limited to less than 30% of Aerobic Set and less than 20% of total Workout. This is important! We will run a similar set on Thursday morning this week with the rest of the week being low intensity, some sprint work and skill work.

This workout was provided by Peninsula Sports Academy Head Coach Alex Webb.
