Session #3

Warm-up 15 min to include movement prep and 4x 10 sec strides.
Workout – for the next 30 min, run on an approx 2K loop – alternating 3min
on/2min off. For those who are new to running and/or have foundation but no
intensity to this point – perform the 3 min at a perceived exertion of 70-80% of
max. For those who have strong running foundation and have been performing
intensity – shoot to hit 80-90% of max on the 3min on. During the 2min off – we
want to continue to run easy vs completely stopping or walking, to train our
bodies to recover while still moving.
Warm-down 15 min

For those training with heart rate monitors and have been tested – we can
discuss and determine target zone on Monday.

Important aspect of interval training – learning to pace ourselves in order to
complete the entire set – vs hitting the first one super hard with nothing left
for the remaining five.

Remember – intervals are not about how hard we can go – but challenging yourself
at the perceived intensity – placing yourself on that edge of discomfort and
mentally focusing on holding solid, efficient relaxed form.

**Workouts performed as a group, with each individual attacking efforts at their
individual perception of prescribed exertion level.
