4 mile run
@ 70% effort level this should feel easy and comfortable
45 minutes of cross training
this can be a medium effort on the elliptical trainer, maybe a cycle class, or swim.
something low impact but aerobic
focus on form, strength, cadence
start out nice and easy but as the run goes on feel free to progress and get a little faster but no more than about a 10k pace effort.
This is a zone 2 aerobic run very relaxed very slow and easy about 60-75 seconds slower than goal race pace
7miles @ 60 seconds slower than goal race pace
Hill Running... find a hill about 1/4 mile long and do 4 repeats up and down the hill focus on form, good arm swing, short stride, forward lean, drive off the toes into the hill.
Then relax down the hill loose shoulders and just glide.
(if on a treadmill set incline of mill to 3% and run for 2 minutes) then go back to 0% for 2 minutes of recovery and repeat 4 times
you should run some proper warm-up and cool down miles before and after the hills
45 minutes on the bike
or ride outdoors
whatever you have access to. the goal is to ride at 90-95rpm cadence for the entire ride and focus on a medium effort that has breathing in control and feels comfortable
