Here’s week four of the training programme:

Now coming up to the halfway point of our seven-week programme, you should be starting to feel the training taking effect.

This week has some very intense exercise, so let’s see you breaking through those barriers.

As we now kick into the second half of our programme, you may want to change routes to keep the mind fresh. Also remember that running with a partner will always help push you that little bit further towards your goals.
