WEEK 7 – FINISH LINE
We hope that the workouts have been satisfying and that the time outside has been worthwhile. As our 2021mile project enters its final week, take a moment and consider how things have been going over the last few weeks. If you’re feeling good, go back to your one mile route and try digging deep to see how much faster you can go. If the workouts have been tough to fit in it’s completely understandable. With the better weather some time outside this week will still feel good.
Remember to do a full warm up before the workout and bring some water for after your finish.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
- 15 minutes “easy” to arrive at the starting location for your workoutOption A – brisk walk or “trot”
Option B – light continuous jogging
- 1 mile workout – Repeat a few more stretches and you’re ready to go!Option A – Increase your brisk walk to a pace which you can sustain but is not painful. You may even alternate running for short periods with walking. Try and keep the pace right to the end.
Option B – Run your 1 mile route. It’s normal to be excited and start out too fast. Find a pace which is “comfortably uncomfortable”. Try and push right to the end.
Regardless of the final time you deserve congratulations for the effort and for the work that you do every day.
- 15 minutes “easy” cool down
Try for one or two other easy workouts during the week if you have the chance.
