Week 6: 03/12-03/18

Hi, everyone! It’s Haley with your weekly training for our 5K coming up on April 30th (more details to come).

Let’s get started!

 

Week Six: 

*Before each run, make sure to do a warmup with some dynamic stretching (the moving kind). Here’s a sample warmup: 20 walking lunges, 20 Frankensteins, 20 windmills, 20 quad pulls, 20 hip openers, 20 hip closers, and then stretch anything else you need.*

Sunday 03/12- Start with 3.5 miles and run at a comfortable/slower pace, record your time.

Monday 03/13- Do 3.5 miles at a slightly faster pace and record your time.

Tuesday 03/14- Rest day. This is super important in keeping you away from injuries so don’t forget it!

Wednesday 03/15- 4 mile run at a comfortable pace, record your time.

Thursday 03/16- Add in some cross training for 10 minutes then do a different type of cardio such as cycling, elliptical, swimming, etc. Here’s a video of an example of a little harder difficulty than the first few posts: CrossFit.

Friday 03/17- Rest day. This is super important in keeping you away from injuries so don’t forget it!

Saturday 03/18- 3.5 miles, run as fast as you can and record your time.

*After each run, cool down with a slow jog for about 5 minutes. Do some stretching at the end incorporating dynamic and static stretches. I always need to stretch my hip flexors. Here’s a good post-workout stretch video: Here*
