Understanding your training heart rate zones will assist you to train efficiently and effectively. In this session you will complete some running tests following which our coaches will help you to set your training heart rates zones. You will learn how to use the feedback from your heart rate monitor effectively as a training and racing tool, and how often you should be running in each heart rate zone to ensure performance improvement without injury risk. Bring your heart rate monitor.
The session will include nutrition advice about fueling for regular training to keep up energy levels and see performance gains, what to eat and when after a hard session, and the timing of pre-run meals plus good food choices.

Strength training is a supplement to a runner’s roadwork because it strengthens muscles and joints, which can improve race times and decrease injury risk. This session will introduce strength training exercises that you can do anywhere (no gym equipment required!) to boost your running performance. Our coaches will spend time individually with you to demonstrate the correct technique for the exercises and then watch as you give it a shot. A full arsenal of exercises (along with frequency and repetitions for key muscle groups) will be shared so you can incorporate them into your regular training.

The Run by the Bay pacers assist participants to achieve their time goals in the 21.1km and 12.8km runs. Pacers are experienced runners who aim to maintain an even pace throughout the race with the goal to have you finishing slightly faster (30 seconds or so) than your goal time.
For easy visibility, the pace runners will be holding a coloured balloon and a goal time sign high above the starting runners. Each pace runner will also wear a singlet with the goal time marked on the back. Pacer’s will start in the appropriate start zone for their allocated finish time. You will be assigned a start zone depending on your predicted finish time as indicated at your time of registration. On race day you should start the race near your pace runner.
