MITHACAL MILERS track workout Tuesday, 12/5 at 7:00 PM in Barton Hall

This is our last indoor workout for 2023 because Barton Hall is closing for finals and then the holiday break. I’ll post outdoor workouts for the next few weeks, and then we’ll reconvene indoors on January 2. A few quick reminders:

To make the most of our last chance at the track for a few weeks, this week’s workout will be a ladder of 200-400-600-800-600-400-200. We’ll be playing with paces in this workout, so the 200s and the 400s will be at your R pace, whereas the 600s and the 800 will be at the slower I pace. The rest will be 400m after each rep. The repetitions total 2 miles of speed, so if you aren’t running at least 25 miles per week overall, you can drop the 800.

As a reminder, you can look up your target times for each of these reps on the Jack Daniels’ VDOT Running Calculator. Select the 1 Mile distance, enter your time trial time, in minutes and seconds, click Calculate, and switch to the Training tab below.

Kate McCormick will again be leading kids 5–11 in running games until 8 PM, and Alex Kleinerman has volunteered to wrangle the younger kids.

Any questions?


Hi Adam, Ben was sick for a while so he hasn’t been running much. He wants to come tonight but will definitely need to modify the workout.


No worries—he can pull back on the pace and perhaps trade the 800m rep for more rest. There are always ways to customize the workouts.
