April's Workout Wednesday and Fuel Up Friday posts are provided by our newest partner, Vámonos Coaching. Here is the first Workout Wednesday from Coach Ramón.
Getting faster on the run is something almost all of us would like to achieve. Consider tapping into the power of strides on your next run! It is important to note that strides are not be confused with sprints. It should be a controlled pace, opening up your stride length a bit, without a great amount of exertion dropped down.
You can do different variations of this, depending on the race distance you are training for, but here is an example workout.
Easy 2-mile shakeout
Ease into a 20-second stride
Recovery jog for 1-2 minutes
Repeat strides/recovery set 3-5 addition times
Finish up with a 2-3 mile cool down jog
