Whether you’re a seasoned runner, beginner or first timer, everyone is welcome at our mid-week training session. For those of you running the half or full marathon, this session will build on your previous efforts. For those of you running the Bluebell 10k, this will be a great kick start to your training.
You’ll all be working at your own ability and racing goals, so everyone is welcome. And before you start to groan at the thought of speedwork, let us tell you why this will benefit you as a runner – not just your race time.
Tempo means pace. It’s about running faster than you would on your long run, but not quite as fast as you would for a hundred metre dash in order to teach your body to use oxygen more efficiently.
By running at your lactate threshold (the point where your legs start to get tired), your body produces lactic acid. The more you train at this level, the better your body becomes at re-cycling the lactic acid as fuel, keeping that heavy leg feeling at bay. And with fresher legs you can run further (and faster) – which is just the ticket for a 10k, half or full marathon.
