Saturday 31st July Training Session (Controlled Discomfort!)

Matt's instructions for Saturday:

Saturday 31st July - Meet outside changing rooms at Dangan 10am after 10 min warm-up jog.

Session - Threshold running

Key principles - You are aiming to run at the pace where running switches from aerobic exercise to anaerobic exercise. By not running so fast that the activity become significantly anaerobic it means that you can sustain a pace that will really work the cardiovascular system for a long period of time. After the first couple of minutes your heart rate should be at 80-85% of your max.

Matt will take the Wednesday track session as per usual tonight. Originally we had cancelled this week on account of the Boston 5k, but with that posponed, the Wednesday Session is back on. Matt has a nice 'fartlek' (i.e. speedplay!) session around the trails in mind. We'll start a bit later at 6:15 tonight - be warmed up beforehand. Spread the word!
