Did you make it to day 2? Hopefully, considering yesterday you were allowed to have a rest day! A bunch of our runners attended a hot yoga class at Harbor Yoga studios. No resting here!
If you are a veteran…
Consider mixing in a little speed work on Tuesdays. Speed training has many benefits, which you can read about in our previous post.
Today’s speed session – let’s start off easy. This can be completed on a track, outside, or a treadmill. We will use time instead of distance.
- 5-10 minute warmup [EZ jog or walk]
- 2 miles of intervals [pickup your pace, slow it down, pick it back up – remember Indian Runs?]
- 5 minute cooldown & stretch
If you are a newbie…
Just work on building endurance and take it nice and easy. You should not incorporate speed training into your running routine until you’ve been running [injury free] for at least 6 months.
Remember, you can adjust the weekly schedule to meet your needs, just do your best!
Just joining us? Below are some links to get you started…
The challenge is below, both a picture and pdf version.
