You’ve made it to the last week of Part 1 of the Speeding up for Spring Schedule, Chasers. Congrats! What better way to celebrate than a mile time trial?! 😉 There is still a bit of work to do this week before the time trial though, so let’s get to it!
First up, we have a progression run, which will help you with some eventual longer distances. The total length of the run is 1 hour, broken down as follows:
For your usual Thursday speed session, you will be warming up the legs for the mile time trial. It’s just an easy 3 miles run followed by 4 sets of 100m strides at the end to get those legs ticking over.
You can obviously choose to do the mile trial at a time that suits you best, but the schedule is optimized to give you a several days after the progression run of easy running before “race day”. As a reminder, the two “official routes” for the mile are either in Regent’s Park or Victoria Park. See the Strava links below.
Good luck with the time trial this week, have fun and run safely! This means being cautious of others as well as warming up and cooling down appropriately.
Part 2 of the Speeding up for Spring Schedule will be posted soon.
Happy Running! Sarah
