Working in Lorne and Apollo Bay I truly appreciate having this stretch of coastline on my doorstep. An incredible course that is steeped in rich history from the diggers 100 years ago, and the Gadubanud people since forever. For many people this is an 'A' event with a lengthy and dedicated training schedule to meet the demands of the race. I am doing my best to support your journey through providing specific strength training to compliment your running, make your training more effective, and keep those pesky injuries at bay. Research suggests that your performance can benefit by 7.5% too. Not bad. I understand the requirements of training for a goal event so I have crafted your strength training with all variables taken into consideration.
Phase 2 - Showtime
Designed to be performed at home or at the gym. It's time to get serious. A favourite mobility warm up that you can perform daily (if you wish), to keep those hip flexors feeling good. The plyo is now more dynamic, the strength has stacks of challenging single leg exercises to boost your running specific strength. Then the core.... challenging, rewarding, and again designed with May 16 in mind. Don't focus on reps, simply set your timer for 10 mins, rest as required and work your way through. Follow the vids, track your progress, enjoy the journey.
