So how did your first week go? Legs sore? Don’t worry, to be expected. Hopefully, the soreness goes away in your second week.
As for Week 2 you’ll notice that on key days, Tuesday and Saturday, you’re adding more hill runs. These uphill climbs build cardio and leg strength – and Pier to Peak is the kind of race where oftentimes the stronger woman or man wins.
Make sure you stick to the percentages on recovery days. Even if you’re feeling great don’t give in to the impulse to push it. You need fresh legs for those hills.
Have a good Week 2.
