WHAT TO EXPECT In between hard workouts (Speed Runs or Long Runs), it's important to take a day to recover. This doesn't always mean rest--you can go on a short, easy run and let your body actively recover, too. This workout is designed to help you keep it cool and controlled during a Recovery Run.

WORKOUT Run for 8 minutes and turn around, taking the same route to return to start. The second half should be slightly faster, but no more than a minute faster than you went out. Your goal is to stay relaxed and maintain a comfortable pace throughout the entire duration of your run.

TIP While running uphill, don't lean too far forward. A slight lean with your chin leading your chest is enough. Take shorter strides so you're not putting as much strain on your quads, while maintaining a quick cadence, and use your arms to create momentum. On the downhills, focus on getting your breathing under control and lowering your heart rate.
