Cowichan Running

Base -Maintain:

  • 45 to 60 minutes with 4 to 6 times 50 meters to 100-meter strides worded into the middle of the run
    45 to 60 minutes hilly run. Run smooth and steady up the hill. A quicker leg turn-over, recover and run easily in between hills
  • Get out there for a run! 45 to 60 minutes on a flat to moderate surface.

Build:

  • 20 minutes warm-up and cool-down/ 1 to 3 x 2 km (start with what you know that you can do)/ half the time of your km for recovery. Run the 2 km repeats at 15 km to half marathon pace. If this pace is too easy, rather than increase speed, increase distance: run 4 to y km at current 15 km to q/2 marathon pace
  • The same workout above by time. Example 5 min km pace for 15 km, run 2 to 3 x 10 minutes at 5 min km pace effort
    Go long? Fine to maintain a couple longer distance runs of up to 2 hrs. It is not recommended to increase your time if you are struggling to maintain constancy in your weekly runs. Be careful not to increase the time by too much.

Peak-Sharpen:

  • 20 minutes warm-up and cool- down / 6 to 12 x 400 meters at 5 km to 10 km pace / 200 metres to 400 meters recovery
  • By time the same workout as above by time ( 5 km pace for 400 meters) on road or trail
