Welcome to Day 15 of the Spartan Running Training Plan.
You’ve made it to week 3, Spartan. You’ve grown speed and strength with each of the last 14 days. This week, you are pushing yourself even faster, for even farther.
As we continue to build endurance in our running this week, we are also working our strength work into an endurance phase. This means that your sets will decrease and your repetitions will increase. You are building your body’s ability to sustain an exercise for longer. For our sprints, you are increasing your distance. Challenge yourself to sustain the same speed you’ve held throughout the last two weeks. This will be the longest you will sprint in this program. Hold tough.
