Together with Anders Szalkai, Malin Ewerlöf, Runner’s World, and the digital training platform Twiik, Lidingöloppet launches six digital training programs for all who want to get ready for the race. All training programs are adapted to different goals and distances.
- TCS Lidingöloppet is - with its hilly course - a real challenge. The right preparation and training can help to make this race a memorable experience”, says Anders Szalkai.
The programs include three running sessions per week, and are adapted to various levels to fit difeferent training backgrounds. Each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday include special focus sessions, but participants can choose the kind of training that feel most inspiring.
- Of course, participants do not have to strictly follow the day-to-day planning for the training sessions - the program can be adapted to the runners' everyday lives - continuity is very important, Anders Szalkai continues.
The programs are launched on the digital training platform Twiik. After registering, participants will receive instructions via the Twiik app, and can then register training sessions and results both directly in the app.
The training programs cost SEK 349 and are available on Twiik and soon also in connection with the race registration for TCS Lidingöloppet. The programs are 5 months long and will start on April 25. The programs are adapted for four different time goals for the 30K race and for two different time goals for the 15K race.
