What are strides?
I'm currently following
this 10k training schedule
and the final pre-race session refers to 'strides'.
Can anyone tell me what they are?
all types of training explained here. What why etc.....
I hope this helps.
....... here's the extract on strides,
Warm up 5 mins gently building heart rate, incorporated in run time
Training focus Race pace preparation
Effort Same as Recovery run but after 20 mins, inject 2x1 min relaxed efforts (or 'strides') at 10 km pace concentrating on stride length, arm swing and breathing. Recover with 2 mins easy jogging between each stride. The object is to prepare your body for race pace in the days before race day.
Key words Race pace strides
Heart rate 50-65%
RPE (6-20) 6-9
Cool down Incorporated in running pace
Just the ticket, Pizza man
