Afternoon Run - Week 1 of WHOOP Training

I just finished a 7.639km running that lasted about 0hh:39mm:38ss !


Over the next 8 weeks I am taking part in a training plan provided by WHOOP who are performing some research on the effects of runners, and I think specifically using their product. As I don't have their product, I am part of the control group, with the training plan set up to hopefully allow runners to set a personal best over a 5km run.

Today was my first day of the training plan, and I thought it would be good to post my weekly training plan provided and hopefully provide some insight into how the plan goes.

Below is Week 1 of the training plan with 5 days of work and two rest days: Day 1: Rest

Day 2: 40 minutes total 10 min warm up run 10 x 1 min @ 70% effort ON, 1 min OFF (walk) - alternate between on & off efforts. On effort should feel moderate to hard. 10 min cool down run

Day 3: Recovery Run 30 minutes of work at 50% effort

Day 4: 40 minutes total 10 min warm up run 8x30 sec. hill reps @ 80% effort, walk back down hill. Walk should be no more than 90 seconds. 10 min cool down run.

Day 5: Rest

Day 6: Flex Day 30 minutes of work at 50% effort

Day 7: Long Run 60 minute run at 50% effort

Rest day was yesterday and today was my first work day as part of the training plan. The efforts seem a little low, but hoping they will build up a little further over the coming weeks.

$30 a month, I just checked it out! I'm not surprised you don't have their product! Jesus, that's a non starter for me at that price!
