Today is Tuesday, January 25, 2022. This is Day 2 of Week 3 in the Brooks 2022 Middle Distance daily track training program. Today we will run on trails and add some charges for two minutes. You will get five minutes recovery between each and it will be challenging, as all workouts during the first few weeks are. Just stay focused and take it one day at a time.
Our clip today is from Josh Kerr, the 2021 Olympic bronze medalist at the 1,500m and Brooks Beast TC member. He speaks with RunBlogRun about differences in training between elite and college athletes. Essentially, as you get more involved in running, the more responsibility you have for your training. The journey to see just how fast you can run takes years of training, racing and patience. Learn from Josh. Keep it fun.
