Welcome to Day 8 of the Spartan Running Training Plan.
You’re through the first week, Spartan. The hardest part is over. Your desire to get better is there, now it’s time to get back to work.
During this week, we are working our strength work into maintenance and endurance phases to continue to prevent the onset of chronic running injuries. As for your running work, your distances will become longer and your sprints are going to become faster throughout the week. Don’t let the increases psych you out. The changes are small compared to last week. You made it this far, you can push yourself a little further.
