Easy runs are incredibly valuable in endurance training. Though we may look down on easy training as a waste of our time because we don’t always feel like it’s worth the time, we do need this stuff.

5 minutes Zone 1 / Very easy
20 minutes Zone 2 / Easy
5 minutes Zone 1 / Very easy

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.
