Hi Everyone! I'm here to chat about the artery run workout. What should we be looking for and how can we best execute this session? Post your questions here. I'll be in and out over the next three days to post answers.
As a reminder, here is the session description:
FOCUS: This artery session will evolve moving forward. Don't aim to track pace or progression in a linear fashion, use this for familiarity and a marker to gauge progress in different phases of training. Today, keep this session as a form-based low stress endurance run with heart rate firmly in Z2. The primary work is a set of strong, but not overly challenging, intervals where you carry good speed and effort over a graded terrain. Ideally do this on a repeating hill.
45 mins Z2 running. Over varied terrain if outside is ideal.
Then, SIX ROUNDS: (to be completed on a hill)
2 min Z4 effort (on 3-4 % grade) focused on RPE and HR, not pace. Strong but managed effort.
3-4 min as returning to the bottom of the hill with good foot speed, and extend into easy Z1 running before starting the next interval.
Easy home Z2 to finish.
