Two Months Until CBHM-Ask Jim has a Training Schedule for You

Image
Long Run Guidelines with 2 Months to go to 2018 CBHM Written by Jim Burnett
Ask Jim has a Training Schedule for you!
How long should your weekend long runs be as you prepare for CBHM?

I suggest running timed runs as follows. Run out-and-back routes so you know to turn around when half the time is up.

During your warm up start really slow, even walking is good.

Give you body a chance to get the juices flowing gradually, then slow it down during the cool down to begin the recovery process.
