East River Park Track Workout

The East River Park track is east of the FDR at East 6th Street. It is a little over a mile from the closest subway stops (6 to Astor Place or L to First Ave).

Thursday workouts change from week to week and will be announced in advance.

Important Information about East River Park Track: The Whippets have been running here for three years and have experienced thefts of our belongings. We will take extra precautions to keep our bags safe, but please avoid bringing valuables -- and it would be safest to run with your wallet on you.

Please be aware that there are limited overhead lights, so it gets a little dark, and during winter months the bathrooms are locked and the water fountains are off. If you have a bike, make sure you have a lock because you'll have to keep your bike outside the track area.

If you feel uncomfortable leaving your personal belongings at the track, you can drop them off at Ace Bar (531 East 5th Street between A and B) -- ask for Justin or Charlo and tell them you run with the team.  They will store our belongings for us.  ***Please note that they will not let you in without your ID so please bring that with you to the track.   http://www.acebar.com/about.html

See you there -- and please contact a Whippet captain if you have any questions!

    Recommended workout for December 26: 20-minute warmup, including jogging, form drills and strides. Then...

    SPRING MARATHONERS: 4-6 repeats of 1000m at slightly faster than 5K pace, with two minute jogging recovery after each. EVERYONE ELSE: 6-12 repeats of 400m at slightly faster than 5K pace, with 200m jog recovery after each.

    These repeats are intended to be done at the Daniels VDOT interval pace. Calculate yours with this link: http://www.runbayou.com/jackd.htm

    Everyone should finish with 15 minutes of jogging/stretching/core strength work to cool down.

    PACES:
    * 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.
