Week 1 | BRP Day 8
Today is about going the distance. Don’t worry about speed. And just a little reminder, we want running to be something you look forward to! So grab a friend or go to a park or a new trail. Use this workout not only as a way to practice longer distance running and building cardiovascular strength, but also as a time to explore! Get outside, be inspired by nature, and enjoy.
Long run (Alternative: long hike or walk)
Duration: 25 minutes
Location: You choose! Go explore.
Remember to keep good hip position and tall posture
If 25 minutes seems daunting, think about breaking it up. (E.g. run for 3 minutes, walk for 1 minute)
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 towards.
• 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.
