HOW TO INCREASE YOUR RUN PACE
Introduce race-pace running now so you’ll be better prepped come race day
It’s really important, especially in athletes newer to triathlon and running, to establish a good fitness base before attempting faster more vigorous training. This is why the traditional training calendar begins with primarily easy, aerobic training and technique work.
This also means that when it comes to faster training, your body is ready for it and you’ll be better protected against illness and injury. This session is designed to introduce your body to faster running so it can begin to tolerate more. But try not to get too carried away and run too fast just because the intervals are short! The main set is continuous to provide a good endurance workout with a sprinkling of race-pace running, which may begin to feel difficult by the end of the set.
Another benefit of this session is that it introduces race-pace work to give you an idea of what you might be able to sustain when racing begins.
