Early Week Easy Midweek Hard

With the MURPH challenge approaching at the end of the month, we've got a nice bit of prep coming at you midweek. You'll be able to take on the full Murph workout but split the work 50/50 with a partner... getting you some good practice at pacing your rounds of Cindy, as well as some running volume.
Monday Tuesday this week features a strength and EMOM combo, that you can push if you want, or use it as "base" training for later. If you've been training regularly and hard, I would recommend working on quality of execution on mon tues and then hitting race pace effort for the Murph prep.
Our weeks are planned in such a way to help guide you through waves of higher and lower intensities, and don't overlook the fact that the lower intensities are valuable in "building" fitness.
The higher intensity days need to be performed at or near maximum effort for best results, and you can only do that if you have other days that are lighter.
Keep fit and see you soon
