1 A Star Media Event The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Thursday February 15 2018 33 Star Media SUNDAY MARCH 18 www.city2surf.co.nz CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME WEEK 6: Taking the next step up This week you are going to use the fitness you have built up in the last 5 weeks. You should now feel comfortable with the rhythm and technique of the jogging movement and you can maintain this for a longer period of time (this applies especially for the beginners group). For the intermediate group there is a bit of pace change at the Monday and Friday run. Remember the different training intensity zones? Zone 1, easy: this is a pace whereby you are not too puffed and the talk test is not even a test. At this stage this is the zone you spent most of your time in as it will give you some initial conditioning without the risk of soreness or muscle strain. Zone 2, steady: this is slightly faster than easy; it can also be called a “firm” pace. It takes a bit more effort to talk but you can still form sentences without having to take an extra breath. Zone 3, moderately hard: this is the pace where you need that extra breath to finish your sentence. You can still talk and jog at the same time but it becomes more laborious so LEVEL THURS OR FRI SUN TUE WED Beginner 14KM jog/Run Intermediate 14KM 6KM Jog/Run 6KM/ 14KM Walk 30min jog continuously 30-40min easy jog with 3x2min Z2 alternated by 2min Z1 in the middle 30min jog continuously 6KM 25mins 14KM 60mins 40min jog 40-50min easy jog 40min jog 6KM 35mins 14KM 90mins (Both mod) 60min brisk walk or 40min slow jog 40 min easy jog 45min brisk walk or 30min jog 6KM 70mins 14KM 135mins 40-50min jog 60-70min easy jog Z1 40min 6KM 60mins 14KM 75mins (alternate 5mins easy, 5mins mod) you tend to shut up and concentrate more on your rhythm and holding your pace. Zone 4 and 5 are for the competitive athletes only and do not apply to the beginners or intermediate group. In these zones the oxygen supply does not keep up with the oxygen demand so you get really puffed to the extent that you cannot have a conversation. This pace interferes with the enjoyment of what you are doing and is not necessary if your main goal is to finish the event rather then competing.

If you are concerned about your health at any stage please undergo a health check with your GP. TIP OF THE WEEK Many of you will be stretching vigorously before and/ or after your training session. You do this because others are doing it as well. There is not much evidence that a conventional stretching routine prevents injury or keeps you flexible. There is no real need for stretching unless you have a specific problem with particular muscle groups and you have been advised by a physiotherapist or doctor to stretch. The most effective form of stretching for flexibility is yoga, but you will have to do it on a daily basis and for a minimum of 20 minutes and for most of us it will not make us better runners.
