Prospect Park Thursday Speed Workout

We are hosting weekly "track" workouts at Prospect Park every Thursday evening. The workouts will be identical to the East River Park Track workout of the week, which will be posted at least 24 hours beforehand.

Although there is no track at Prospect Park, we'll find the flattest part of the park to do the scheduled workout.

All paces are welcome. Please comment in Talk about this Meetup if you have any questions!

    Recommended workout for May 2: 20-minute warmup, then...

    BROOKLYN HALF ATHLETES: 3-4 supersets of 1.5 miles each as 1600(HM)800(15K). This is 1600m at half marathon pace followed by 800m at 15K pace with no break between the pace changes. Jog 800m after each to recover, and finish with 15 minutes of jogging and stretching.

    NEW JERSEY MARATHONERS: Just do 2-4M easy followed by 10x100m pickups.

    IF NEW TO SPEEDWORK: 3-4 repeats of 1200m at 15K pace, with 800m jog recovery. Finish with 15 minutes of jogging and stretching.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
