We will continue to update this as the month moves forward.
Over the next 7 months we will be training for you to complete a 2 mile run in 22 minutes. You can do this! Timed run is May 1st
When we first talked about running the 1 mile in 12 minutes many people groaned but 78 out of 80 people completed the mile in 12 minutes and the remaining 2 completed it within the 15 minute limit... and you only had 60 days to prepare! Those facts speak volumes about your abilities! It also gives me great confidence you can complete the 2 mile run in 22 minutes.
The attached PDF document provide a suggested training schedule I've collated from several online training sites. We will also be training in class more frequently. At the end of the year I hope you prove to yourself that you can do anything you set your mind to! and perhaps sign-up to run your first 5K (which is only 3 miles)!
