Today we have a test of our running ability that nets us just under two miles of running. To this point, we have 15-18 minutes of running in todays workout but only 6 minutes of rest. So while the rest may allow us to push slightly harder, this isn’t the day to PR your mile run. Rather, we’re looking to keep our pace between 85 and 90 percent difficulty for every rep on the run today. One big tip that I like to give people on running days is to relax your face. We want feel our face soft, like our cheeks are bouncing up and down with every step. Often times we grit our teeth and it looks like we’re getting a tattoo while we’re running. This impedes our breathing and makes us feel like we’re working harder than we actually our. Soft face will help you feel better and run faster!
What’s the quickest you’ve ever had to think on your feet?
