Dave's PR 5K Training Program TOLEDO


Mon June 4 - Sat July 28, 2018
Location: Sylvania, OH US 43560 Directions
Type: Other
Metropark Monday Workout

This is considered our “strength” day for the 5K training program. The Monday meetings will take place at Swan Creek Metropark (4659 Airport Hwy, Toledo, OH 43615) in June and Sidecut Metropark (1025 W River Rd, Maumee OH 43537) in July , and you will begin with structured fartlek runs to build up the necessary cardio strength to complete a 5K at your goal pace. These sessions will force you to run out of your comfort zone for a set period of time with a brief rest only to take you right back out of your comfort zone again. This will assist in building that cardio “strength” so you can maintain a hard pace for the 5K.

We will also implement tempo runs on Mondays for the same purpose of the fartlek workout.  The difference between the two workout sessions is that the tempo run will have you running for one block of time or distance unlike the fartlek which has multiple, shorter time periods of harder running.
