Central Park Training Run

Our Tuesday night Central Park training workouts are typically tempo runs or hill repeats.  These workouts are usually very well attended with a wide variety of paces.

The meeting spot is inside the Time Warner Center in front of the main floor escalators leading to Whole Foods. (Do not go down the escalator into Whole Foods.) Transportation and directions:

http://www.shopsatcolumbuscircle.com/directions-address/

We will leave the Time Warner Center atrium at 7pm sharp but will regroup at 7:15ish at 72nd transverse to give the full workout details, including distance, pacing groups, expected run time, and where we plan on meeting at the end. You can expect a typical workout to be between 5 and 8 miles (or less during hill workouts).

If it's your first time meeting us, find us at the Time Warner Center atrium instead of looking for us at the 72nd transverse.  It's much easier to link up with us at 7:00 at the TWC if you don't know what our group looks like -- there are many other groups who meet on 72nd St.

Please note that there is no place to store bags inside Central Park. Pack light, or store your bags at a nearby gym if you are a member. Another option is the New York Running Company at the Time Warner Center, which stays open until 9pm:  http://www.therunningcompany.net/new-yorks-homepage

When you RSVP, please post your pace time and/or training run distance for the day.

    Meeting at 72nd

    Recommended workout for March 11: 1-1.5 mile warmup. Then...

    SPRING MARATHONERS: 3-4 hill sets of 14 minutes run on a hilly course at a steady pace that is just slower than half marathon speed. Jog 4 minutes easy after each repeat.

    NYC HALF COMPETITORS: Limit yourself to 2 hill sets (described in Marathoner workout).

    EVERYONE ELSE: 5-10 repeats of 400m uphill @ 5K-10K pace (or 15K pace if new to speedwork). Jog back down to recover.

    Everyone should finish with 1-2 miles of easy jogging 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.

      For this workout: If your spring goal race is the NYC Half, stop at the recommended workout (2 x 14min on hills). If your spring goal race is anything else, favor VOLUME (more repeats) over speed.
