Tuesday - Hills: try to find hills for half the run.

Thursday - Quicker: make an effort to run 1-1.5 miles a bit quicker.

Sundays - Comfortable jogging pace. [if running with a partner conversation should be easy]

The days may be switched around of course to suit lifestyle. The rest days ARE important!

The 2 rest days before the ‘longer run’ is not set in stone, if you want to run on one of these

daysdo so but slowly.”
