Plan developed by Mindy Solkin, owner and head coach of The Running Center in New York City.

This week’s routine is a repeat of last week’s. "Focus on your breathing, breathing in and out through your mouth," says Solkin. "Your mouth is a lot bigger than your nostrils, so you’ll get a lot more oxygen, plus you’ll feel more relaxed when you’re breathing through your mouth." Pay attention to how your body feels even as you go faster and use your arms to help you pick up your pace.
