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 June 27: 20 minute warmup, then...

    ALMOST ALL RUNNERS (especially anyone racing this weekend): 30-40 minutes of running at 300m easy, 100m stride (steady acceleration to 90% top speed and then steady deceleration).

    TRACK MEET SPECIALIST WORKOUT: Tempo run: 2 miles @ 5k to 10k race pace, 3:00 rest. Then 4x200 @ faster than 1-mile race pace w/1:30 recoveries.

    Everyone should finish with 15 minutes of easy jogging, core work and stretching.

    Sorry- beginner's question- I am really new to speed work and currently run at a slower pace (9:00-9:30)- would this still work for me? Also- what is the normal distance covered?

      Hey Kelly, you should totally come and do the workout as long as you have a decent number of base miles. I'll post the workout now.

      actually I don't think I will be able to make it this Thursday- this heat is killing me!
