Week 4 | BRP Day30
Congratulations! Today is the last long run day. 45 min to the finish line ladies and gentlemen! You’ve done a fantastic job making it this far. We know it wasn’t easy, but you pushed through the challenges, overcome obstacles and discovered a part of you that has been hidden for a while. The athlete within you is set free. So explore the world around you on your run today. Share your run with a friend. Smile and be proud!
Workout: Long run at easy pace
Duration: 45+ min
Location: Park trails, the beach, neighborhood or wherever you want to go!
Focus: Keep in mind what we learned about the arm swing, keeping it controlled and not crossing the center line. Also remember to stay tall and hips forward.
If 45 minutes seems daunting, think about breaking it up ex. run for 5 minutes, walk for 1
Just keep moving forward
Keep in mind what you’ve learned about posture and hip position
If you don’t have a metronome, count how many times one leg hits the ground in a minute
90 steps per minute is a good pace to work with but work on finding your sweet spot.
Use this every once in a while, especially when you feel fatigued
This will keep your run consistent and help you stay stronger as you tire
