Week 5: Training - Gets Tougher. By now you should be running at a better pace than when you started and noting that your tempo runs are more fun. Do the tempo and hill runs with teammates--hard workouts are easier that way. Check your shoes weekly! Remember, at this point of season, you probably have two days of racing a week, a Tuesday and a Saturday, more than likely. Race days should be considered hard days, and remember, warm up and cool down are very important.
This week, runners run daily for main sessions. Advanced athletes should add a 20–25-minute session (3 miles) of easy running on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Do these runs at the opposite time of day that you do your hard workout.
