Speed endurance training



Introduction speed endurance training

These heavy training form exist from long pieces run with high speed and a limited number of repeats.
The mentioned % are percentages of the anaerobic threshold.
The anaerobic threshold is approximately equal to: 220-age-15. Another method is: take 80 % (beginners) to 90 % (advanced) of the maximum heart rate.
For more information: Training with a heart rate monitor.
The pause lasts long (to maximum. 20 minutes), so that there almost complete recovery takes place.
For training tables: Speed endurance tables.

Running speeds



Limits number of repeats (one up to three) of long pieces (1 mile, 2 mile, 3 mile) or (3000m, 4000m, 5000m) run in a high speed.
Heart rate:160-185.
Duration: 10 up to 30 minutes.
Lactate: between 4 and 6 mmol/l.
Pause: to maximum 20 minutes, so that almost complete recovery takes place.



The impact is equal to those of endurance training in speed 3. You train extra the increase of the maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and race hardness.
