Threshold training has been proven to be one of the most effective methods for improving your running performance for anything from a 5k up to a marathon. A threshold or tempo run is a specific workout wherein you run at and above your lactate threshold in order to improve your fitness. The overall aim for training and racing is for your heart rate to remain lower even at a faster pace as this means you can sustain this faster pace for longer. 00:00 intro 00:19 heart rate 00:22 the differents zones 02:31 lactate threshold heart rate 03:58 session 1 04:17 session 2 Useful Links Submit your Photo and Video to us πŸ‘‰ https://gtn.io/UPLOAD Check out the GTN Shop πŸ‘‰ https://gtn.io/TeamKit GTN Training Plans πŸ‘‰ https://gcn.eu/gtntp Watch more on GTN... πŸ“Ή Watch our Editor’s Choice Playlist πŸ‘‰ https://gtn.io/editorschoice πŸ“Ή Watch our weekly show, The GTN Show πŸ‘‰ https://gtn.io/GTNshowPlaylist Photos: Β© Triathlon / Getty Images 🎡 Music - licensed by Epidemic Sound / Artlist 🎡 Easily Attached (Instrumental Version) - Vicki Vox I've Had Enough (Instrumental Version) - Snake City Spectrum - Felix Salt Heart Beat Fast - SFX Producer #gtn #triathlon #swimbikerun #swim #bike #run #threshold The Global Triathlon Network (GTN) is the world's biggest triathlon YouTube channel, with new videos every day!
