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 July 11: 20 minute warmup, then...

    MOST RUNNERS (including marathoners and non-marathoners with a solid base): Long descending ladder: 2400m @ 15K pace, 2x1600m @ 15K to 10K pace, 3x800m @ 10K pace (800m recovery after each).

    IF RELATIVELY NEW TO SPEEDWORK: 4 repeats of 1200m at 15K pace with 800m jog recovery. TRACK MEET SPECIALIST WORKOUT: 6 repeats of 400m @ 1 mile race pace with 1:00 active recoveries.

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

    * Marathon pace = your goal pace or estimated pace if you were well-trained.
    * All other paces = your estimated pace if you ran the race this weekend, unless goal pace is specifically noted.

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.
