Run a 5k Faster Day

Today we are working on our 5k efficiency – or how we are able to process lactic acid while running at 5k pace. It’s a hard workout, but if done correctly can greatly improve how you run your next 3.1 mile race. Get ready for some shorter intervals with more rest than a threshold recovery.

Tuesday’s Workout:

15 minute warm up

Drills: Toes, A walk, Knee to Chest, High Knees, Skip

Group 2: 200’s @ current 5k pace with equal rest
Group 3: 400’s @ current 5k pace with equal rest

10-15 minute cool down

Just a reminder: Thursday’s run has been moved to Wednesday this week! We have been meeting at Cooper River Park’s outdoor track at 6:30 in the parking lot next to the huge jungle gym. We hope to see you out there!
RSVP for our run here or just show up ready to run!
