Training

We encourage you to find a training schedule that fits your Lake2Lake goal. If you’re planning to run 10km each day at Lake2Lake, we encourage you to train for a 10km run with some back-to-back long-run days. If you’re planning to walk 5km each day at Lake2Lake, we encourage you to start building up your walking endurance, with a few longer walks that are back-to-back. There are many training schedules available on the internet. If you’re having problems finding one for your specific plan, feel free to contact our team and we’d be happy to work with you to find something that works for you!

Below is a sample training schedule to cycle 200km over 2 days. There are distance goals for each week and suggested riding days of Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Of course you may not be able to ride those days, but you could still use the suggested weekly totals to prepare yourself to transform education from the seat of your bike in September!

Oh, and because this website is responsive, the schedule looks great on your smartphone. So if you’re out riding and forget how far you’re supposed to go, you can always check.

PLEASE NOTE: This is only a suggested training plan. Please consult your doctor before beginning any kind of endurance training program.
