WEEK 6- HOME STRETCH

WEEK 6 – HOME STRETCH

Whether you’ve just been out a few times or pushing your limits every week, hopefully your time outside has felt worthwhile.

This week is our penultimate workout. Look for a pace you can hold for the full 10 minutes during middle of the workout. If it’s a warmer day than you’re used to, or you didn’t get enough sleep the night before, your workout may feel tougher than usual. This is ok! Use your effort to guide you rather than looking at your watch. As you get more familiar with how each level of effort feels you can run each distance with more confidence.

YOU CAN DO THIS!
