I am so excited to share this new 7 mile workout that I created. I’ve run a combination of it now a few times and I really think you will love it!
This 7 mile workout makes the miles you run fly by while combining both easy efforts with more challenging efforts.
Most importantly, this workout meets all of my running requirements:
It’s Engaging. This workout keeps you mentally involved in your run rather than leave you waiting for the miles to be completed. By focusing on what comes next, you are totally lost in your workout rather than left with time to think about when it will be over.
Challenging yet manageable. Running this workout gives you the opportunity to pick up your pace and work hard while providing enough recovery windows which allow you to catch your breath and keep from overdoing anything.
Customizable. This 7 mile workout is structured fairly loosely which means you can choose your effort level and pace for the working sections. You can also lengthen the distance or shorten the workout based upon your time constraints.
Run outside or on the treadmill. Easily run this workout outside or follow the pattern inside on the treadmill! I love this part because it means I can use this workout throughout the year, including in the winter when I run mostly on the treadmill.
Okay let’s take a look at the workout details!
See what I mean?!
This new 7 mile workout is straight forward and easy to remember. That’s another important part to creating workouts for me – I want to be able to remember what is next. Sometimes you come across a really involved workout and I always wonder what people do to remember the steps. Do you write it on your hand? Carry it listed in your phone?
This workout is easy to remember while running, I promise! And, this workout allows you to decide how you want to handle the effort sections. Maybe you just want to pick up your pace a notch above easy. Or maybe you want to be specific by picking up your pace to run at half marathon pace, 10K pace or 5K pace. Totally up to you! Mix the miles up and practice all of your paces!
Feel free to shorten or extend this workout pattern too. Extend the warm up miles, middle miles or finish with a hard effort. This workout is super versatile which I love about it. It’s nice when you can follow a plan yet have your own personal flexibility based upon what you are in the mood to run.
Please let me know if you try this workout or if you have any questions!
