- This training program is designed for somebody who is currently running ~ 4-5 x per week.
- The suggested training plan can be altered by those runners who currently exceed the volume or frequency suggested by the program.
- EP = easy pace. You should be able to have a conversation at this pace.
- SP = steady pace. You might be able to say a few words or a short sentence at this pace. But cannot sustain a conversation. It is faster than the easy pace, but slower than the hard pace.
- HP = hard pace. You might only be able to get 1-2 words out at this pace. Look at the length of the interval to work out how hard you push. This pace should be sustainable for the entire length of the interval but will get very hard in the last 30 secs or so.

BASIC TIPS FOR RUNNING
- Consistency over time is the key.
- Recovering between runs and allowing your body to adapt to the training is equally as important as the runs themselves. Keep your easy runs easy!
- If you feel any niggles coming on see someone before it turns into a longer term injury
- Vary the surfaces you run on. Get out on the trails and gravel as much as you can. This will help with both enjoyment and injury prevention.
- Update your footwear regularly. Even having a couple of different pairs of shoes to alternate between can be a helpful way to minimise injury risk. And they’ll last twice as long.
