Sunday runs are EASY runs, this will be your slow distance run. This run is to help improve your aerobic endurance. Going at a nice easy comfortable pace helps your body learn how to utilize fat as a fuel source.

Monday runs are meant to help strengthen your legs. Find a hilly course or run a section of Stony Creek or add some incline yo a treadmill workout.

Tuesday – rest or do resistance training.

Wednesdays are for Yasso’s workouts. Warm up for a half a mile, then go hard, out of your comfort zone for a half mile. You should be breathing heavy.

Thursdays are for yoga or resistance training.

Friday is a race pace run. You run the pace you want to run in the race. If you are not sure what this is, this is the day each week you can try different paces to help you determine your race pace goal. It should be faster that your Sunday run.

Saturday is a rest day, or make up day for any run you may have missed during the week.
