Make sure to warm up before you start this workout, and cool down afterwards to help your muscles recover.
Start out with a 1 mile warm up at an easy pace to get your muscles warmed up and your heart rate up.
Then, it’s time for the 800m repeats. For each repeat, push yourself to run at a hard effort. You should be working hard, but still be able to carry on a conversation. The 2 minutes of rest in between each repeat will help you recover so that you can give it your all on the next repeat.
After you’ve completed 4 repeats, it’s time to cool down. Slow your pace down and jog for 1 more mile to help your muscles recover.
This is a great workout to add to your running routine. It’s a great way to work on your speed and endurance. Give it a try and let us know how it goes!
