WOD Sunday 16.03.14

workout of the day WOD

Supercharge your aerobic capacity by spending more time moving forward. When you can’t run anymore, walk. Just keep moving forward. Come race day, you’ll be thankful for all that extra time you spent on your feet. Learn more about Long, Slow Distance (LSD) training.

Run/Hike/Walk

Sprint level: 30-60 minutes
Super level: 60-90 minutes
Beast level: 90+ minutes

Opinions on optimal run cadence differ, but some studies suggest that maximum running efficiency can be found around 90 foot strikes (per foot) each minute. So, if you want to count it out for yourself, that should be about 30 foot strikes for one of your feet for every 20 seconds. Feel out this cadence for yourself. Run a familiar area and check you pace. You might be surprised.
