We’ve found a 5 week plan to follow if you want some guidance – it does assume a bit of fitness beforehand but makes it very attainable and breaks it down with a good variety of runs so it’s not all about distance.
|Wk||Session 1||Session 2||Session 3||Session 4||Session 5||Session 6||Session 7|
5 mins steady 5 mins threshold
Steady Run 20 mins
Duration of your choice but no longer than 45 mins
2 sets of 10 repetitions
Long Run 40 mins
So here goes, this weekend we are going to do the 30 minute ‘Threshold Run’ alternating between 5 mins steady and then 5 mins at a threshold level – ie 8/10 effort! We’ll let you know how we get on and also gets some photos up as the course takes shape!
Hope you are rounding up a few willing friends to run the Alf Tupper with. Remember there’s a prize for the best fancy dress too – so get your creative thinking caps on!!
