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:

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:

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

    I'll be doing one full loop sort of mimicking the Scotland 10K course at a pace of around 8:15 min/mi starting from 72nd transverse if anyone wants to join.

    Recommended workout for April 1: 1-2 mile warmup. Then...

    BOSTON MARATHONERS: Run at marathon pace for 80 minutes on a hilly course.

    NEW JERSEY MARATHONERS: 2M at 15K pace, then 2:00 jog recovery. Then do 4 repeats of 1000m at 5K pace (1:30 rest after each). Then do 8 repeats of 200m @ 3K pace (200m jog recovery after each). BROOKLYN HALF and SCOTLAND 10K COMPETITORS: 3-5 repeats of 800m uphill at between 10K and 15K pace. Jog back downhill to recover.

    ALTERNATIVE FOR RUNNERS WHO ARE BUILDING A BASE (new to speedwork, or returning after time off): 2-3 repeats of 800m uphill at 15K or half marathon pace. Jog back downhill 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.
