Tuesday Track/Hill (Interval workouts)

Please read the following before RSVPing 
1) I am not a coach my workouts posted are only a suggestion feel free to do whatever you desire. (Be that walking around the track or running the surrounding neighborhood) 
2) NO ALCOHOL on school properties (this should not need to be stated but I feel the need to say it). 
3) track etiquette please be aware of other runners lane 1 is generally reserved for interval work so please do not walk/jog in the lower lanes. 
4) Warming up is essential in staying injury free. 800 meters to 1 mile warmup will usually suffice but if you're sore in a particular area some static stretching may help. Dynamic stretching helps as well (particularly in warmer weather). NOTE: We will warm up together prior to starting the workout. 
5) We have been successfully doing track workouts for 3 years now please contact me (John Gamrat) if you have any questions or concerns.

      Garmat - I can't make it at 3p. I'll be there at 6 if you're still there.

      Great, too bad your original intentions didn't come to fruition. I'll be there at 6:00 if I wouldn't the mighty hand of MRG might smite me down. Do you plan on biking over?

    I'm a maybe depending on weather/vball. If so, I will be there around 4:00 and doing 3 sets of 4x400s with 800 in between and my favorite 10x100 to finish

    Plan is 6 × 1600 meters at 10 seconds under your half marathon pace. Rest will be jogging a 400.

    I'll be there around 430 and am doing 1200s. Are we allowed to use the track if football practice is going on?

      Yes, you can always check the high school website for track meets but so far it's been ok

      Christina, we had no issues using it last week. Just may want to start your 1200s a few meters up as you will be running a bit in lane 2.

    what kind of workout are you planning this week? I was either going to go to Hart Park or Shorewood (if there are not big T-storms), it would be my first track workout in years... so I can't run 6 minute miles like I used to.

      Doug also note that the workouts posted are merely suggestions. Nobody here is a coach and no track workouts are one size fits all (as the organizer of these workouts I feel the need to write this disclaimer) I can promise you however I will be at Shorewood at 6 to answer any questions or concerns. I'm sure Anne will post whatever her coach dictates that she needs to do (as she's been doing since I started organizing track workouts). Having said that I'm thinking mile repeats. I'll elaborate once I finish work.

      sounds great. mile repeats are good for me and I know when to slow down or drop out so no worries on the disclaimer side.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
