Types of fitness involved in running
My aim is to improve my cardiovascular endurance as this is what I see as the weakest element of my fitness.I will be measuring this using the cooper test, the cooper test is an internationally recognised test and is used by many armys across the world.The results can be compared to this table for my age range.I will test pre and post program.
Pre Program Test
Before I began the pr
This is my average day of food intake this will be taken into consideration when planning my pep
Breakfast : Bacon sandwich with tomato sauce Glass of orange juice
Morning Snack : Small chocolate bar
Lunch : Peanut butter sandwich Bag of crisps Carton of orange juice Cookie Dinner: A cooked meal with usually meat, potatoes and vegetables
Evening Snack : Usually a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar and a glass of coke.
To help with my pep I am going to be adjusting my diet as I will be burning more calories.I will swap things out with healthier options
Breakfast -Bowl of cereal Orange juice
Morning Snack – Piece of Fruit
Frequency - I will train twice a week Mondays and Thursdays,giving myself time to recover.
Intensity - By the end of the program I want to be working at about 65% of my maximum heart rate (220-age=205) which is 133 to begin I will start at 60% of my maximum heart rate which is 123 I will then gradually increase my intensity.
Time – My sessions will last for about 45 minutes if the activity’s are finished early they will be repeated.
Type – I will use endurance, circuit and fartlek training
I will also take into account:
Variance – I will vary my training sessions to avoid boredom,I will do this by using a variety of machines.Variance is important to maintain motivation.
Reversibility – I will be aware that when training is interrupted,the muscles will begin to return to their pre exercise state
Warming up is very important prior to exercise ,the increased heart rate will release more oxygen to the muscles.I will start the warm up shuttle runs of 25m each to increase the heart rate, followed by a series of dynamic stretches to stretch the muscles in use during the training session.
A cool down is also very important, it helps your heart rate and breathing return to resting rates,it also aids the removal of lactic acid to prevent muscles soreness.I will start by doing a slow paced jog which slowly changes into a walk followed by a series of static stretches.
Training Session 1
Warm Up - Shuttle Runs 2x25m Sprints 4x25m Jog 2x25m Sprints(Pulse Raiser)
Lunges,Leg Swings and Ankle Bounces (45 sec each)
Activity - 2km run (keep constant speed) 9mins50seconds 2min rest 1km Row (Speed 7 resistance)11mins40seconds
Down - 500m walk
Equipment - Cones,Rowing,Machine,Running Machine
Evaluation - Resting Heart Rate(start) 76bpm Active Heart Rate 126bpm Time taken to return to resting 6mins
I feel that this session went well I repeated the main activity twice. So for the next session I think I should extend the distance for my run.
