Notes / Tips for new runners:

  • All of the runs are the same again this week.
  • 3 min runs may seem intimidating at first, but remember to slow down to the conversational pace as needed, especially on the first day.
  • You may also play with doing the first run interval easy and pushing it on the second one.
  • Try something new this week. Run at a different time, eat or drink something lite before you run. Get some new shoes or socks. Try something to mix things up.

Week 3 Challenge

Are you feeling sore? If not – it’s coming. Running can be tough on your body, especially as you build a new running habit. My challenge to you for this week is to try some yoga.

This is my very favorite yoga class specifically for runners. It will help your feet, legs, hips and back in a major way! I think this class is appropriate for all levels, but if you are totally new to yoga, you may want to try this class first.
