8 x 2 min, 1 min rest
“Run 2 Run”
8-12 x 20 sec sprint/run, 40 sec jog/walk
*Not training for a 5k and want to just get out and run? Or you’re not a strong runner and want to get out a little more? Try out this workout! No pressure to cover a certain distance, just move a little faster for 20 seconds, then slow things down for 40 seconds.
**Spending Tuesday and Thursday doing some time based runs as we did on Saturday with the 2 x 8 min time trials.
This one should still be around 400m, give or take. Work on keeping your mile pace in check with what you did on Saturday for the 8 min repeats. Shorter rest times, so keep that breathing under control so you can cover close to the same amount of distance each time.
