30 Min Running Workouts (weekly workout recap)

running path

Somehow it’s Monday again! I literally blink Friday night and, well, here we are.

So I decided that I want to return to focusing on 30-minute running workouts, especially during the week. As we move further into the fall/winter months, the later sunrise means a shorter outdoor workout time frame. At least for me, I won’t run/walk outdoors until the sun is up.

30 minutes of running is plenty of time for a quality workout, especially when you maximize those minutes. I always liked 30-minute running workouts when I was shorter on time but what’s also nice is that they help prevent physical AND mental burnout. More is NOT always better, you know?

While I made up last Monday’s 30-minute running workout myself, I did ask Laura to send me her post filled with 30-minute running workouts so I could share them with you today.

I had planned to run one more 30-minute workout last week but it just didn’t happen. It’s always best that I go with how I’m feeling and I could tell that I needed more walks than runs. Perhaps this week will be different!
