Feeling Fit: Monitoring Intensity Levels

P.A.C.E. Model for Self-Monitoring Cardiorespiratory Endurance
Students ran in the Terry Fox Run but also the 12 Minute Run.  Junior/Intermediate students monitored how hard they were working using the P.A.C.E. Model that I came up with above. Students found their OWN pace that allowed them to move at a continuous pace with a partner.  The monitored their PACE using the talk test and breath sound check.
Rate of Perceived Exertion: Primary-Junior
Junior-Intermediate Students participated in the Beep Test where they will then decide what distance will allow them to gradually increase intensity.  They will decide on the distance to run - 10 metres, 15 metres, or 20 metres.
