Thursday July 30th
Today’s workout is courtesy of Aerobic Capacity.
Light jog for 5mins
Then some basic warmup drills
High kicks, butt kicks, hurdler stretch, leg swings, hamstring stretch
2x1min at easy/moderate pace, 15 sec rest
2x2min at easy/moderate pace, 30 sec rest
2x3min at easy/moderate pace, 45 sec rest
2x4min at easy/moderate pace, 60sec rest
2x5min at easy moderate pace, 75sec rest
Goal with this workout is to teach pacing.
Perform on as flat as possible out and back course. Run the first interval out looking at your watch, rest the allotted time and then return back to your starting position without looking at your watch.
The goal is to have both intervals the same speed.
For example set 2
Run 2mins out looking at your watch. At 2mins stop, rest 30secs and then start the 2mins back to your starting point. The goal is to finish + or – 2 secs. So 1:58-2:02 would be a good return time.
