Friday Fartlek Run: Sweat Elite’s 10k Predictor B

Running 1,000m reps are long enough to tap into endurance (especially with a short rest) and also short enough to tax your VO2 Max, but it can also be a great way of predicting your 10km pace. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events between 5km & 10km.

Thursday Training Plan – 12 week Auckland Marathon & Half Marathon

The Auckland Marathon and Half Marathon are great events and one of the first to confirm their dates in a post-COVID world. When you cross the finish line you will have achieved something special at this great event.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: 30-20-10 Intervals H

Riding at your VO2 Max will help develop your ability to time trial and to ride long climbs. This session will help you develop that and is great for all cyclists including triathletes and mountain bikers.

Tuesday Training Plan: 4 weeks to a Faster 1500m with only two 2km per week (25m/50m Pool)

As you follow the programme you will find yourself swimming your 1,500m faster. Now whether that is a PB or not will depend on how fast you have swum in the past, but it will definitely be faster at the end of the 4 weeks than it is now. With this programme people improve on average nearly 2 minutes, with some people improving by over 10%.
