RUN + YOGA challenge [Day 2]

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!

Today is RUN day.  images

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!

Good luck!
