Tuesdays are speed days if you are a veteran. Get that heart rate up, get more bang for your buck and BLAST away fat!
If you are a newer runner, just try to get out there and log 2 or more miles!
AFTER WARMING UP 5-10 min, here are some ideas for speed training today…
- Trying to improve your Half Marathon or Marathon time? Find a track and try some Yasso 800s… start with 4 x 800s at your desired marathon pace [i.e. if you want to run a 4 hour marathon, aim for a 4 minute 800; for a half marathon, just double it… i.e. desired half marathon time is 2 hours, run 800 in 2*2 = 4 minutes]. Rest 60-90 seconds and repeat.
- Love the mile distance? Do mile repeats at your 5 or 10K pace, resting 60-90 seconds in between each mile.
- Pushing a stroller? Just do intervals! Pick up your pace from one fire hydrant to the next, slow it down, then repeat. Your baby will love it!
