Training Plan Terms Explained
w/up: Warm Up, should always be a very easy pace and you should be able to easily hold a conversation.
c/down: Cool Down, should always be a very easy pace and you should be able to easily hold a conversation.
Easy Runs: Faster than your warm up or cool down pace at approximately 60% - 70% effort, you should still be able to have a conversation.
Steady Pace: Breathing becomes more difficult and you’d no longer be able to hold a conversation, approximately 70 - 80% effort.
On/Off efforts: On/Off efforts are when you run a solid, hard pace approximately 80 - 90% effort (On) for a set period time, this is then followed by an easy pace jog or walk which is a recovery period (Off) for the same duration.
Continuous Progressive Runs: These are continuous runs but the pace will change for a set period of time through the duration of the run.
