Complete an aerobic zone run for the prescribed time down below, based on your goals. Record meters completed during run. Your aerobic heart rate zone is where we will spend the majority of our training during this program. The formula for finding your aerobic heart rate that we will use is.... 180 - (your age) = aerobic zone threshold. We want to stay below this number for our aerobic zone runs. For today's workout, see time domains below 10 mile goal: 45 minutes 10k goal: 35 minutes 5k goal: 25 minutes
