"The purpose of this workout is to keep a consistent pace throughout all sets."
Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 mins (or less!).
This week’s run workout from comes from USAT certified coach Michael Gallagher, a coach and owner of Oregon-based Rogue Tri Performance.
