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

This week’s run workout comes from Marilyn Chychota, a Tucson-based coach for Endurance Corner. It varies pace between a steady effort and moderately hard, and challenges you to both make a distinction between the two as well as to recover while going harder than your typical easy recovery pace.

“Moderate your fast running so that you are able to recover while running Steady, not easy,” she says. “Watch how your mind will tempt you to hammer once your heart rate riseslearn how to manage your pace.”
