To build fitness safely, you can use your breathing as your guide to how fast you should be running. On easy runs, you should never get out of breath and should be able to carry on a conversation with a training partner. If you get out of your breath, then you are running too fast.

Repetition is the cornerstone of any good endurance program. Life can often get in the way of your training but I encourage you to prioritize your workouts. Most of us find that if we get in our exercise, everything else in life is better so be disciplined to get in your workouts. There's nothing fancy about a run like this, but consistency of mileage will give the fitness you need on race day.

This is your first Progression Run - a run that begins at your Easy Run pace but ends with a faster pace (a pace that feel medium-hard). The faster pace should leave you out of breath by time you finish the run. The idea is to ingrain finishing fast, something you'll want to do in the race.
