Tips:
While you are sprinting, try to focus on your breathing. You can control this by breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth.
When your legs and arms want to give out, that’s how you know you’re improving as a runner!
Include fellow hawks and be sure to challenge each other.
Challenge yourself. Do not stop until you’ve completed the entire workout!
