Advanced Heart Rate Training Clinic – 3:00 PM – Falls Church, VA

 

As mentioned in my email earlier this week, this clinic requires RSVPs to Ken. I believe the clinic is filled but will find out for sure – if you didn’t RSVP and are still interested, please let me know. We WILL offer this clinic again later in the year.

 

This clinic will build on our standard HR clinic with Matt. Ken will talk about the special challenges of racing and how to us your HR to improve performance in a race, with consideration of the length of the race, overall goals, past performance and experience.  He will talk about smart and effective training, looking at the all important Z2 training, with considerations of such things as HR drift and factors leading to a need to retest and expected changes in HR zones. He will also talk about the importance of higher zone training, its role in making one faster, and how the pieces fit together. Other issues will include a discussion of VDot training metrics versus HR, and the role/importance of weight training. This program IS NOT targeted at or for the elite athletes (although they will certainly benefit). Instead, it is for ANYONE who wants to learn more about training and gain new insight into how this knowledge can help them achieve their own personal goals. Ken may also stay a bit late to talk to people informally about their questions and challenges.
Leaders:  Ken Mierke

 

When:  Sunday, 3:00 PM
