10 Guided Workouts For Your Next Run
First Run: One of the many things that excite us about Guided Workouts is how accessible and encouraging they are for new runners. This beginner-friendly interval workout with Coach Corinne is a great place to start and it’s less than 25 minutes long. This is a good base workout to build upon when you’re ready to add longer intervals or extend the overall duration of your run. If you like this Guided Workouts, check out the newly released Second and Third Runs.
I am a Runner: Coach Corinne encourages you to explore what it means to be an athlete and a runner. It doesn’t matter what your pace is, how far you run, or what you look like: you are a runner. Remember that and say it proudly.
10-Minute Beginner Warmup: Don’t underestimate the power of a good warmup! 10 minutes is all it takes to help you start your workout right. This simple and effective warmup will get your whole body ready to run.
A Mindful Run: Whatever your reason for running, mindfulness is a worthwhile practice to include in your routine. Dr. Justin Ross encourages you to be present and attentive in this guide to running mindfully.
First Fartlek: Here’s your word of the day. Fartlek means “speed play” in Swedish. Coach Matt will kick off this workout with a warm-up, talk you through the basics of speed play, and how a little variance can change the way you run intervals.
40-Minute Treadmill Hill Run: Don’t let anyone tell you indoor running can’t be as effective as outdoor running! If the weather is bad or you just don’t want to run outside, this is a challenging incline workout to add to your running toolkit. Bonus? Your coach is the same Coach Erin from My First 5K and 10K! Be careful going down those stairs later.
Volume 3 of the I Like Running When It’s Over Series: This is one of a series of separate workouts. We don’t always feel like running, OK? No shame in this! Some days, it may be a drag to motivate yourself to even get dressed for a run. Let that be the first step, then turn on this interval workout with Coach Corinne who’s here to provide the motivation—and distraction—you need to get through. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of rest between intervals!
My First 5K and My First 10K: The Guided Workout plans that started it all! These are user favorites for a reason. Coach Erin’s upbeat personality motivates you through a series of workouts designed for absolute beginner runners or those who’ve taken a break from running.
