2017 Spring/Summer Workouts, Week Eighteen, Day 4, a day of changing gears

| 0 Comments

The workout you have today is a tough as you want to make it. The idea would be to run the straights hard, so that you can run strong sprints and jog the turns. This work out is about changing speed and practicing the changing of speeds!
