This is Thursday, April 13, 2023.
This is day four of Week Five of the Spring Training for the Middle Distances!
Today is a hill day.
Your workout is warm-up (includes 10 sit-ups, pull-ups, push-ups), 15 minutes moderate running, 6 x 100-meter uphills, 15 minutes moderate running, 6 x 200-meter uphills, 15 minutes moderate running, 6x 250-meter uphills, 15 minutes cooldown, cooldown slowly.
During the workout, push hard up the hills, jog down, return to running, and then into the second uphill section, and stay focused. The third hill section will be done while you are tired; then, keep the last 15 minutes relaxed.
Hills build speed, strength, and confidence.
