Running 9th July @ Southampton Sports Centre.





Firstly the sets are designed to improve anaerobic power. In these sets, we are going to exercise above your anaerobic threshold. When we work anaerobically above our threshold hydrogen ions are accumulating in the muscles. This, along with other cellular changes is going to produce short-term fatigue and you are going to produce muscle fatigue very quickly. Working for short periods anaerobically is one of the best ways to improve your aerobic capacity, which is the pace that as an endurance athlete you will spend the vast majority of your time competing at.


Secondly, you are being given 90 secs of recovery between each set. You must keep moving in a recovery jog to keep your heart rate up and to stop you from seizing up.


The 90 sec recvoery is so that you have time to rest between efforts so that you can concenrtrate on form and economy of movement.


During a race, there are times when you will need to increase your cadence and run faster. However your technique must remain efficient, otherwise, you will waste energy, something you don't want to do as an endurance athlete!


Any question then please PM Me.


I haven't filled out all the group coaches yet, but I will let you know on the night.
