So last week amidst the chaos of work and personal life I began the first round of this training and then got derailed due to life in general.
Day 1 was on 9/17 and it was harsh!
The goal with this training is to lower my race time. You run your normal pace then speed train for 4 rep with a short walk between, then finish at your normal pace. It doesn’t sound like it would kick your butt but it does- my stride it small for my height so this program really pushes me to open up my stride and take off!
Last week my Balloon Fest race was 51:30 so I can tell you it shaved off about 3 minutes form my time 🙂
if I can use this tool to get to a sub 45min 5K time I will begin distance training for the 10Ks! Whoohoo!
Since I was sick yesterday I am taking one more day to rest up and relax then begin training again tomorrow afternoon. thank goodness for cooler weather! 🙂
