In today’s workout, we are going to work on sustaining our lactate threshold – or more plainly, the ability to get rid of the lactic acid that tends to build us as we near the end of races. It is so important to build up our tolerance of this byproduct (lactic acid) because the benefits of clearing it are so important to running fast.
The goal of any tempo should be this: run “comfortably hard” (10k-15k race pace) for an extended period of time. This effort then translates to allow your body to more efficiently clear waste byproduct of running really fast.
Some reading material on tempo runs:
*Just a reminder that we will be meeting most Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Cooper River Track Stadium at 6:30 pm. We meet in the parking lot next to the big jungle gym.
