How To Get Started With A Running Program?
When get started with a running program we suggest including 3 different types or running workouts:
- (1) Intervals / Speed Work: Intermittent periods at faster than race pace followed by periods at a lower intensity that allow recovery.
- (2) Tempo / Sustained Efforts: Consistent pace at race pace for shorter than race distance.
- (3) Long: Consistent pace at slower than race pace usually for race distance or longer than race distance. In some cases it maybe less than race distance.
It's important to remember there is no 'one size fits all' running program - it needs to be personalised for you and your event. If you'd like help personalising a running program for your level of running experience and your event distance just let us know and we'll help you put it together.
