CVRR Tuesday Session for April 25th, 2017
Hello CVRR runners and well done to any who ran the Vancouver Sun Run, Snow to Surf or any other event this last weekend. This week we will be taking a break from the track to softer surfaces on the Vanier field.
Session Focus: Cruise intervals (comfortably hard pace) to increase lactate threshold which enables one to run fast over 10 km or more up to the marathon distance.
• Warm-up 10-20 minutes
• Dynamics @ 5:10 PM – drills and stretching (meet at track)
• Workout: 3-4 x 2 laps on grass field at Threshold pace (comfortably hard) off 1 minute recovery
• 4- 6 x 20 second strides on grass off 45 seconds rest
• Cooldown run of 10- 20 minutes (very important)
Let’s hope for sunshine but the grass will be great in the rain too! Remember grass running is easier on the body while it builds leg strength.
See you on Tuesday!
