Since the February 23rd track meet has an 800m instead of a mile for a change, we’re going to do a workout that will focus on some speed after the last few endurance-based workouts. Next week, before the race, we’ll do something short and fast to build confidence without tiring out your legs. But for now:
- 2 by 600m at R pace plus 3 seconds (ie, a little slower than R pace). 600m recoveries.
- 3 by 400m at R pace. 400m recoveries.
- 6 by 200m at R pace minus 2 seconds (ie, a little faster than R pace). 200m recoveries.
If your weekly mileage is under 20 miles per week, drop one of the 400s and two of the 200s. Any questions, just ask.
See you tonight at Barton!
