The Weekly Preamble
Notes, techniques and quick tips to help you feel your best and get the most out of your runs each week. Read this section before you get started with your weekly workouts.
Day 1 with brisk intervals will always be the hardest day of your week
Day 2 is always the easiest day of the week to aid in recovery from Day 1
Day 3 is always a moderate day to build your confidence and lock in the pattern
Interval training is a combination of increased effort and recovery periods. The important part is the contrast in effort between the two periods.
Total time: 35-45 minutes
Run slow & easy for 5 minutes.
Run 25-35 minutes steady and comfortable.
OR alternate "10-and-1s" 2 or 3 times as you feel.
