Sure, it rained last week but just knowing that others would be getting just as soaked made it just a bit easier to work up the motivation to tie those running shoes on:)
last week we worked on holding our new faster paces for a bit longer by running 4 X 1200 meters. Knowing we got a nice long recovery of 400 meters after each Repeat made it completely achievable.
THIS week we will continue our streak of awesomeness by running 5 X 1000 meters (again with a lovely 400 meter recovery period)
Our goal for these Repeats is to run at a slightly faster pace than our goal pace of last week. This is due to the slightly shorter distance we will be running.
Just like when you're trying to run longer distances, the way to do it is to slightly increase your pace/distance each week in order to build up your muscles. That is what we're trying to do each week with these workouts...
Just in case you were thinking we would be skipping our warm up laps and our drills...we're not:)
In addition to our workout we will run our warm up laps and then as a group look like dorks:)
