Run Session

Friday Fartlek Run – Lance Watson’s Short Hill Reps A

Running in hills develops leg strength as well as the strength of the tendons and ligaments around the knee and ankle. Developing leg strength is important, as it makes for a more powerful contraction of the leg muscles to propel you forward faster. Including hills regularly, particularly early in your build-up will see great dividends in the improvement of your running. This workout is great to include early in your build-up to develop leg strength.

Friday Fartlek Run: Steady Plus 45min

Race pace for events longer than half marathon distance for most athletes aren’t run at threshold pace but instead a touch lower with large portions of the event done at Level III. It’s important to expose the body to training at this level of intensity. This is a great workout for someone training for a half to a full marathon (whether part of an Ironman or 70.3).

Fartlek Session

Friday Fartlek Run: 3x 8min Threshold Runs

Spending time running at or near your threshold pace will develop your ability to sustain a fast past and also build your tolerance to lactic acid. This session is great for all runners and triathletes. 10km runners will benefit from this style of session as it simulates race effort. Longer distance runners even including ultra-runners will also benefit as your effort will build to this intensity on long sustained climbs.
