Skill Development
Work on applying running technique covered during the warm-up running above via 200-800m Run, simply walking any distance for a cooldown today would yield notable benefits to recovery and vibes of Yahtzee. What was that? A question? … Of course athletes are welcome to up the ante and stomp out a one mile jaunt if anyone is still feeling motivationally frisky after the metcon.
