Welcome to Day 19 of the Spartan Running Training Plan.
It’s been a long week so far, Spartan. Your training week is almost over.
For today, we are ramping up your speed, agility, and quickness work. We are building your leg power and stride with track work, running drills, and plyometric exercises. Have some fun with your ladder work. These exercises are open to your interpretation. The more creative you are with your ladder drills, the more your running will benefit.
