For the remainder of the summer, we will be focusing on 4 key workouts per week. Three with the Club and one on your own.

This new training premise is that running performance is achieved through separate components: the cardiovascular system, running muscles, the ability to cope with and minimize lactic acid, the maximum oxygen uptake capacity, speed, and efficiency of the runner’s movements. Each system is improved by training at a particular intensity. Each run works at least one of these systems and when you put it all together over the course of a season, each run is a puzzle piece that comes together to improve your performance as an athlete.

Workouts will still consist of SPEED, HILL, INTERVALS and LONG runs. The only addition, the pace that you perform at will be tightly dictated and maximum benefit. 

Training Paces

Easy. The E pace is for easy running. It is typically used for recovery between intervals, the bulk of many long runs, and "non-quality workouts".

Marathon. This is a runners predicted or actual marathon pace (for our purposes - ANY desired race finish time, regardless of distance).

Threshold. This is the primary pace used for intervals, and is intended to maximize V̇O2max

Before each rep, roll a die – each number corresponds to a pace pattern that you’ll run for the entire rep. The paces aren’t exact, rather it’s the effort that counts.

  • 1 = alternate Easy / Marathon every 400 m
  • 2 = alternate Easy / Threshold every 400 m
  • 3 = run the whole interval at a Marathon effort
  • 4 = run the whole interval at a Threshold effort
  • 5 = alternate Marathon / Threshold every 400 m
  • 6 = 10 push-ups and then run the whole interval at Marathon effort
