From Active Runner and leading runners Steve Scott and Jessi Stensland come some valuable tips on preparing for a fast 5K.
While these are clearly geared to running really fast times, the principles are those that drive the Norfolk County Pacers' track and hill workouts. Repeats of 400 to 800 meters close to your pace. The track workouts are run during during the good weather. The hill workouts are run during the winter as the location we have is ideally suited for safe winter running.
It is still too early to run really hard. But not too early to ensure that you get some quality mileage in your legs to prepare for some fast races later this year.
May the roads/trails be kind to you!
