A lactate threshold run is where you run a pace and effort that is right on the line of where your aerobic system switches over to anaerobic. In other words, in the aerobic phase, you are taking in enough oxygen to supply your blood and muscles for your activity.
This workout is perfect for getting your legs ready for a winter training cycle leading up to a spring race (Shamrock, Boston). If you reside in the Shenandoah Valley area, this would be perfect for preparing for the SVR Winter Series.
Another edition of Workout Wednesday! It’s been awhile since we hit the core, so I thought I’d give you another great workout to keep in your strength arsenal.
Are you training for a specific event, with a specific goal pace in mind? If so, the only way to reach that goal is to consistently run your goal pace during training. No, not all of your runs should be, or need to be, at fast paces. In fact, we suggest a ratio of 80/20 easy to hard effort training runs. If you struggle with goal pace in training, you will most likely struggle during the race.
Whether you are an obstacle racer or not, these strength exercises will help power you through whatever path is before you.
