Are you getting URBANATHLON FIT?

With only 13 days from the Men’s Health Urbanathlon San Francisco, many of you are getting excited, anxious, and fit for the event. As events start to near it is normal for people to get anxious and start to ask “I wonder if I have been doing what I need to in order to be ready for the event?” Well in case you are in that predicament, just know that everyone has different needs or gets fit in their own ways. There is no cookie cutting an athlete as everyone’s body is different. However, I think it is a good idea to have a general understanding of what types of exercises need to be performed and then modify your workouts to best fit your needs as an individual. Below is this week’s recommended workouts taken from Men’s Health Urbanabthlon Running Plan and Urbanathlon Workout.

Monday Run 1 mile at an easy effort. Then do this interval routine:  Run ½ mile at a solid effort, Run for 1 minute at an easy effort, Run ½ mile at a solid effort, Run for 1 minute at an easy effort, Run ½ mile at a solid effort, Run for 1 minute at an easy effort. Finish your workout with a 3.5 mile run at a steady effort
