Hello friends! Happy Tuesday. I have to admit, my running has been slacking the past 2 months or so, and except for the run we did while traveling in California last month, my mileage has been pretty nonextistent.
So what’s the best way to get out of a running slump? Signing up for a race! The hubby and I will be doing our local St Paddy’s 5K on Saturday. Obviously not aiming for any PRs, but just looking to get our groove back a little bit. I think that with Spring being right around the corner, I’ll be more motivated to get Frankie out in the BOB too!
Here’s a nice and easy speedwork workout I created. You can increase the easy and fast running if you’re training for a longer race.
Run 1/2 mile at a comfortable/easy pace. For me that was 8:30 pace.
Then alternate with a very easy jog for .2 mile (for me that was 9:31 pace), and then a sprint for .2 mile (for me that was 6:58 pace). Repeat for 2.5 miles (for a total of 3 miles).
Today I will be doing some barbell squats and core work and get back to running tomorrow.
Follow me on Instagram to see how I do on the 5K! @thepetitefastinista
