Just ran in from a new fantastic repeat run. All of you who are reading this and still have not broken out of the rut, running the same miles at the same speed, please try this one out!
In fact, I ran 8 miles on Thursday at a decent pace, but was bored out of my mind on the treadmill and almost talked myself out of it several times. Today I also ran 8 miles, but using this workout and LOVED it. The miles sped by faster and were much more effective and intertaining!
Warm up 2 miles
5x1200 going race pace (early in training you can go a little slower, later in training you can go a little faster)
400 rest jog between each repeat
Cool down 1.5 miles
This workout is also a little less daunting than mile repeat (being that it's just 3 laps!)
