Progressive training is all about building you up over a period of time. This Saucony RBR Summer training program has been tested for over a dozen years with high school, college and club athletes.
Remember, if you are a college athlete, you may add morning runs three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday to the program of 30-35 minutes.
Ben True, one of Saucony’s brand ambassadors, has had a great season, finishing fourth in both the 10,000m and 5,000m at the US champs this year. He scored a big 5,000m pr in July (13:12) and then took second in Falmouth last weekend!
