Today’s conditioning workout is titled a “Foundation Run”. These runs have us operating at an easy effort for a reasonable period of time. Eventually, these workouts will get longer but the intensity will always be easy. If running isn’t your jam then sub this with a light ruck, approximately 20-30 pounds.

5 min in Zone 1
15 min in Zone 2
5 min in Zone 1

Zone 1 – Very easy with little to no impact on respiratory rate
Zone 2 – Easy but able to maintain a conversation without interruption
Zone 3 – Moderate but sustainable for 1+ hours. 5-10 words without interruption
Zone 4 – Hard but not all out. 2-3 words before interruption.
Zone 5 – 97% effort for the given duration.
