Push-the-Pace Workout

“I look forward to is a speed–well, speed for me, anyways–day on the treadmill. I start the first mile a slightly challenging pace and then make sure each one after that is slightly faster then the previous one. Every once in a while I will switch it up and instead of doing three 1-mile repeats, I will do 5-6 half-mile repeats.”
—Christine, another mother runner and contributor to Get Fit Alamo City

Short recovery walk.

Three 1-mile repeats with a 2-2.5 minute recovery walk in between.

Quick recovery walk after the third 1 mile repeat.

    Sorry, I am fairly new to running, and just now am looking into training plans since I seemed to overwork and fatigue my muscles. Anyhow, can someone explain to me what it means by “1-mile repeats”…thank you! I need some good treadmill workouts before fall gets here with all the bad weather!

    am getting experience daily by reading such pleasant content.

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of tumes it’s difficult to gett
    that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
    appeal. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog
    loads super qick for me on Chrome. Exeptional Blog!
