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 12: 20 minute warmup, including drills and strides. Then...

    IF YOU WILL BE RACING THIS WEEKEND: Do 3 repeats of 800m at targeted race pace, with 400m jog recovery after each. Then finish with 20-30 minutes of easy jogging to cool down.


    IF YOU ARE NOT RACING: 3-7 repeats of 1600m at 15K pace, with 400m recovery after each. Do 6-7 of these if you are well trained; stop at 3-4 of these if you are building a base. Finish with a 15-minute cooldown, including jogging and stretching.


    Reminder: All training paces (other than marathon pace) should be done at the speed you could do the race THIS WEEK, not your goal or PR pace.
