STIMULUS and GOALS

This was a great test of running endurance at the Games. The toes to bar are enough that you have to respect the them, but the vast majority of the workout is running.

This is a longer endurance based event with a focus on moderate intensity.

WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW

Run: This is basically a 5k with toes to bar in between. SO it is a perfect time to run at your 5k PR pace or whatever your best guess of that is. Open up at a 75-80% intensity and gradually increase your pace every 0.5 mile if you can.

Toes to bar: Some can hold onto 30 unbroken for every set. If you can, go for it! Otherwise get as close to redlining each set as you can without completely failing. The run in between is plenty of time to recover for the next set.

SCALING

The SCALING aim is to run an appropriate distance and not fall apart on toes to bar

Scaling option to finish near the target score:

25 Toes to Bar

Run 1 Mile
