These workouts are with the understanding that you are running at least 2-3x a week for a minimum of 3 miles. This is a four week workout progression with the goal of having you join the regular workouts on Week 4.
Week 1 – 6-8x 400m (.25) – take 1-2 mins rest – steady and relaxed, try and keep each one around the same time… don’t go out too fast. It’s better to pick it up as you go and learn how fast you can go and still finish the workout feeling strong. Learning pace comes with doing it more. By week 4 you’ll have a better understanding of what “fast” feels like. This workout is 1.5 to 2 miles total hard running.
Week 2 – 8-10x 400m with 1-2 mins rest – same as last week, just a little further. Goal is to feel stronger going further, not so much about getting faster yet… This workout is 2.0-2.5 miles of hard running.
Week 3 – 3x 800m (.5 miles) , 3x 400 – all with 2:00 rest – Steady and relaxed, consistent pace is the goal. Practice positive self talk as you start to go longer. This workout is 2.25 miles of hard running.
Week 4 – you can start to join in the regular workouts…. and adjust as needed! You got this. We are all stronger than we think 🙂
