Good afternoon Striders! I hope you have all recovered from Lesley's Speedy Hills session on Monday night! Tonight's session is VO2 Max ladder. VO2 Max is the measure that an Athlete's body can intake oxygen, the higher it is the more oxygen you can get to you muscles and therefore the more efficiently they will work. The session will comprise of 3 x 30 seconds on with 30 seconds off in between, followed by 2 x 45 seconds on with 45 seconds off in between and finally a 1 minute on with a 2 minute recovery. We will repeat this 3 x this evening. See you all at the Pavilion at Londonderry Park at 7.15pm. Chris https://media.giphy.com/media/uox0TU9ER7RMQ/giphy.gif
