Paddy’s patter

Another week in lockdown and another week of virtual training.
We are getting lots of encouraging messages from people who are enjoying the training plans and MNF.
It’s great that this is keeping the green and gold motivated. Please pass on any feedback and let us all know if you’re taking part in any virtual challenges so we can all encourage you.
Stay safe 💚💛

Zones and Pacing

Zone and target pace HR

Easy x 1.3 10:22 72%

Here’s the science bit, all times below based on running at 8 mins per mile for a 10k. You may need to adjust the timings for your own individual pace.

Following feedback we’ve created a pace calculator to allow you to work out your target paces easily, just enter your target 10k time in the h:mm:ss format and let it do the hard work for you.
For example 45 minutes would be 0:45:00, 65 minutes would be 1:05:00
