Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 mins (or less!).

This week’s run workout comes from USAT Level I coach Jessica Dollar of Nashville-based FTP Coaching (Ftpcoaching.com). “The focus here is re-emphasizing good form throughout the workout,” Dollar says.

5×30 seconds strides with 30-second recoveries

Strides should be performed at a pace equal or slightly harder than 5K pace. Focus on how your form changes when you speed up during the strides, and try to mimic that better form during the two-mile sections.
