The Zone Run

Equipment: No Special Equipment Needed! / Treadmill

This is a fantastic workout for every fitness level because it’s all about you versus you. It’s a 45 minute run workout for the treadmill or the great outdoors, and it’s broken into zone segments: warm-up, endurance, intervals, endurance, cool-down. Every runner is encouraged to tackle each segment by matching Cat’s effort level, which is demonstrated by her heart rate displayed. Or, you can use the RPE (rate of perceived exertion) scale if you don’t have a heart rate tracker. She’ll explain that in the intro.

It’s important to note that to match her heart rate or effort level, it does NOT mean that you will match her pace. She might be running at 6.5 mph and you see her heart rate at 78% MHR, while you hit 78% MHR running at 5.5 – that’s okay! Try to match close to her heart rate or the zones she specifies, not her speed. Get it? Grrrreat… let’s run hon!
