Day 001 - Your first workout!

2 x 1-mile repeats        Training via ActiveMail

RUN TWO ONE-MILE REPEATS: Welcome to your easy 7K training program! In just over six weeks you'll be ready to run a 7K race (about 4.3 miles)! Today we're doing "mile repeats." A "repeat" is anything you do more than once within the same workout. Your goal today is to cover two miles, but you'll break it up by running one mile twice and walking five minutes between the two miles. Do this workout on a measured path or track (four laps of a track = one mile). Time your miles so you learn your pace (how long it takes you to cover a mile). Be sure to do some light stretching before and after your workout.
