Tempos, Fartleks, Intervals! And what about low heart rate and base training?
Today we are talking about types of training. It can be hard with all of the jargon out there.
Here is a guide we put together on running jargon that might help you out too. And we also talk a bit about Run Club, which you can find more about here.
We start with some basics about low heart rate training and base training and why they are different. And we get into some specifics of what is easy, what is tempo and how to tell if you are running intervals fast enough. Most people naturally drift towards the middle and run their easy too fast and their fast too slow, so it’s all about getting the most out of your training.
And the big thing we talk about is about why speedwork, really has nothing to do with speed and everything to do with developing aerobic capacity.
