This program is for people who have started running but would like to improve their time for a 5km (personal best). Best suited for people looking for some structure with their running.
No specific equipment necessary but access to an athletics track, oval or field or flat path to do intervals would be preferred.
Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) – how hard you feel that you are working out of 10. 10 being maximum effort, 1 being a very slow jog or walk.
Strides are completed at the end of your run. Do 50m build efforts with best technique and job back to the start easy.
Long Run - using your aerobic energy system, running at RPE 4-6/10.
Interval Run – doing short efforts that are faster than your normal race pace. Best done on an athletics track or oval with 100m markings.
Target Race Pace (TRP) – The pace you wish to run in a race, specific to the distance.
