Following on from our Turbotastic Turbo Sessions we’ve not posted up a selection of Treadmill sessions to help get through the remainder of the winter weather. A selection of sessions can be download the file and insert you max, min and run MAF heart-rates (if you’re uncertain about this, please discuss it with your coach).
A few tips for treadmill sessions:
- If you’re new to running on a treadmill spend some time running steady before attempting fast running. There’s nothing quite as embarrassing as falling of the back of a treadmill in the middle of a gym
- Always have a slight gradient on the treadmill – this helps compensate for the lack of wind resistance and the fact the ground is being moved for you
- Running on a treadmill is subtly different from running on solid ground so ensure you still run regularly outside.
- Try to run without an iPod (or at least some of the time), listen to your footfall and try to be as quiet as possible.
We will shortly complete this little series with some swim sessions.
