Your stamina and speed is heavily influenced by both the amount and intensity of running you do each week. Each individual run has an impact on your overall performance. Because of this, a week of training with alternating hard and easy runs will make you fitter than a week of challenging runs of the same level each day. Your typical week should include three hard runs: 1. A run featuring sprints 2. A longer run at a moderately high intensity 3. An even longer endurance run These three hard runs should be separated by slow, easy runs. Here's an example week: Monday - Rest Tuesday - Hard Run Wednesday - Easy Run Thursday - Hard Run Friday - Easy Run Saturday - Easy Run Sunday - Hard Run

I often get in a rut where I run the same route all week. I needed this reminder :)
