Starting from August 14th for 2 months, we will be splitting the running session in two different groups:

Short Course: These are athletes training for Short Course triathlons (OD or shorter) as well as running races, kids race, overall conditioning (Hyrox). The focus of this block will be to develop high end aerobic capacity (Zone 5 = vo2max) as well as speed.

Long Course: These are athletes racing a Full Ironman or Ironman 70.3 in the 2nd semester (IM Kona/Nice/Langkawi, 70.3 NZ/VN/TW). The focus of this block is volume at tempo pace (Zone 3) as well as pacing & efficiency

Then mid October we all meet again for another threshold work before the end of year races. For 70.3 NZ, these will work as a speed session and for the short course this will be your specific longer workout
