**The goal today is to start to improve endurance and stamina stamina – going longer distances, and being able to hold a consistent pace. If you’re already thinking ‘this it too easy’.. remember, this is only D2! We’ve got a looong way to go, so be patient.
Thursday workouts will be these longer intervals of 800-1000m, or anywhere from 4-6 minutes of sustained running.
Try to maintain times within 5-8 seconds of each other. These are not all out/ME (max effort) sprints, but something faster than a conversational pace.
3-5 min easy running/moving – include some skipping, grapvevine, etc
3-5 min dynamic stretching – high knees, butt kickers, straight leg raises, knee to chest stretch, walking hamstring stretch, air squats, jumping air squats, Cossack squats
Running drills – choose at least 2 from below. Repeat at least 3 times for reps (10/side) or distance (20+ meters)
Sprints 3-5x – fall and sprint, increasing the distance.
