Time to sweat! 

Remember how we're keeping it basic this month? It doesn't get much more simple than this one!

Workout: 

  • Walk for 60 minutes at an easy/moderate pace
    • Outside or inside on the treadmill
    • This should be enjoyable... walk with a friend or listen to an audiobook!
  • Hill Sprints: 5 minutes
    • Find a hill or set the treadmill to a comfortably difficult incline
    • Sprint up the hill! This should take 30 seconds or less
    • Recover by walking down or jogging easily.
    • Catch your breath and then go again! Continue this pattern for the 5 minutes
    • This should not be enjoyable... :)

Cool-down:

  • Catch your breath, walk around, and stretch!
Even a "gentle" hill like the one in this picture can be humbling when you try to sprint up it.

Tips:

  • A "sprint" for you is not the same as a "sprint" for a track athlete. It just means you run as hard as you can without hurting yourself.
  • The hill also doesn't have to be very steep for it to be effective.
  • WORK WITHIN YOUR INDIVIDUAL LEVEL OF RECOVERY!

 

The summer daylight is on your side... get outside!
