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!

    As your running hosts, Louis and I decided we will do push-ups with Steve at Pork Slope after the run (ie. celebrate his NJ marathon finish)!

      Hope pushups went well! Did you do 26.2 of them in a row at least?

    Recommended workout for May 9: 20 minute warmup, then...

    NEW JERSEY marathoners should stay home or do at most 2-3 easy miles today.

    BROOKLYN HALF competitors: Descending ladder....
    * 1600m @ Half Marathon pace, jog 800m to recover
    * 1200m @ 15K pace, jog 600m
    * 800m @ 10K pace, jog 400m
    * 400m @ 5K
    * Finish with 15 minutes of jogging and stretching

    EVERYONE ELSE, including runners building a base, maintaining fitness for summer races, or getting ready for fall marathon training: Do the descending ladder (described above).
