With the Festive season behind us, we are definitely in our Marathon training season. For some of us it may be a case of training about to commence, for others, it’s time to up the intensity. It was vital not to exhaust ourselves before Christmas, but to have established a good fitness level.
Sundays session is bringing the mileage down from last years last long run.The key emphasis is to combine distance and speed. For those full or half marathon training it is a tempo run, consisting of 2 miles easy, 3 miles at race pace then 2 miles slightly faster to improve the lactate threshold and condition the body without overtraining.
For anyone who is about to embark on your programme, or not training for a particular event, then this is a perfect start to Sundays training sessions. The distance and terrain will allow you to keep to a steady pace before you start to combine different methods of training.
There will be a 5 mile option if enough people are interested. Please leave a comment so we can provide enough trainers.
