Delighted to announce that MYP Coaching will be compiling a weekly tip section in the lead up to the Churchtown 10 mile road race on November 18th. Each week, myself or my partner in crime Rachel Farrell will post one detailed training or nutrition tip to help participants in their preparation for this event in north Cork.


Tip 1: Include some sessions within your training schedule where you work on improving your anaerobic threshold. For most people this is a pace which you would sustain for around 60-70 minutes. These sessions should feel moderately challenging but controlled. You should be able to string a sentence together at this pace but not a full conversation. Examples include 5 x 6 minutes with 1 minute recovery, 3 x 10 minutes with 90 seconds recovery, or a 25 minute continuous run – all performed after a good warm up.
