If you have either a full marathon or a half coming up, this is THE workout to do about 5-6 days out. It will teach you to accurately pace and prepare for your big race.
TempoFit head coach Hayden Shearman will guide you through a 50-minute session that will enable you to make the most of your final key workout before race day. We recommend to do this workout on the Tuesday before a Sunday race.
Suitable for all runners, whether slow or speedy, newbie or old-timer.
This guide is a listen-as-you-run audio tool. Save it to your phone or other MP3 player and play when you are ready to go running (preferably in a flat, measured and traffic-free running environment).
When to use this workout: 4-6 days out from your full marathon or half.
Tips: Treat this workout as a simulation for race day by wearing the clothes and shoes you’ll wear and running at the same of day (if you can) and eating the same breakfast. Also practice consuming the fluids and gels that you intend to use in your race.
Terrain: Ideally do this workout on a flat measured path or 400m running track (or use a GPS watch). The audio guide includes a 15-minute jog warm up, which allows you to run to the start line.
Price: $10 NZD

Note: Unless you stream the Audio Coach direct from your device, iPhone users will need to first save the MP3 file to your desktop iTunes account and then sync to your mobile device. Android users can “long click” on the MP3 file link and then hit “Save Link”—this will download the file to your phone.
