Are you ready to make 2019 your best walking, running, and/or racing year ever? The secret ingredients are a combination of speed, pacing, and long runs sprinkled with rest and recovery days. By adding these three components to your weekly exercise routine, you can take your fitness to a whole new level.
Below are the three crucial elements to a successful training plan.
1. Speed Workout: Fast Day
During these workouts, you will focus on turn-over. Turn-over is how fast you pick your foot up off of the ground and put it back down again. Workouts are shorter periods of time done at 1-mile pace or slightly faster with complete rest in between bursts of speed.
2. Tempo/Pacing Workout: Comfortably Hard Day
These workouts teach you how to hold a steady, consistent pace for an entire run. You are pushing at a comfortably-hard pace for a longer period of time. Your goal is to keep a consistent pace for the entire time.
3. Endurance Run Workout: Easy, Relaxed Day
This workout is done at a slower pace. You are teaching your body and mind to run longer and longer distances.
