Week 6 Newsletter

Finding that next level

Stay Focussed

With only a few weeks to go before your final 10km run now is a good time to focus on getting the most out of your sessions.  
 

Your Week 6 Saturday session has an 8km run for all of you. You have done this before so this is a good opportunity for you to take a risk and try to run at a faster pace than you normally do.

In this week's education we share one of Coach Bevan's Fitness Behaviour podcasts which has tools that you can use when the intensity kicks in.

Remember, it's about taking you to the next level ;-)

Course Description:
Please run on the path at all times and keep left. Please don't run any more than 2 abreast and be responsible for your own safety. 

  1. We start by running up the pathway towards the netball courts. At the end of the pathway, turn RIGHT (towards Moorehouse Ave). Run on the LHS of the pathway at all times. 

  2. Follow the perimeter of the park all the way around to your turnaround point.

  3. Please stay on the pathway at all times and watch out for scooters, cyclists and other using the pathways. 

  4. KM marker out: 4km

 

  • Beginner programme: 8km - no intensity

  • Advanced: 8km Fast - this is an uncomfortable run working at your own pace that makes you work hard.

  • Return: 8km Race - this is all out for you guys, work at the pace you know you can maintain for the 8km distance and be wise with your pace strategy.

Education

Developing your mind for higher intensity

Your Week 6 Saturday run has the team all doing 8km. For our Intermediate and Advanced runners, you are trying to run a fast 8km run. This isn't about just getting the run done. It's about trying to push at a higher level for the whole run.
 

Coach Bevan has done a podcast on ways to develop your mind for intensity training. We think that it would be a good idea for you to have a listen to this and then practice the tools he shares in next weeks run. 
 

The show runs for around 40mins, the key content starts around 5mins into the show:
