***This “progression” workout should be executed on a hillier version of Riverview. I’ll have Leah send you my suggested course. Can’t get to Riverview? Then please find a hilly course.
5 mile “progression” run as follows:
Mile 1 (hilly loop around Market and Chesapeake) = MP-HMP
Mile 2 (flat “upper” path to the small bridge) = 10 mile-10Kpace
Mile 3 (back to parking lot on “lower” path) = 10K pace
Mile 4 (hilly loop again) = faster than first mile but slower than mile 3
Mile 5 (upper path to small bridge again) = fastest mile!
***”Saturdays in the Park” at the new Y. Fun running games with parents participating with their kids. FREE! 8:00-8:30am at the new Y.
SUNDAY July 16
Come run 4-5 slow and easy recovery miles with Coach (and other folks more than me)…
