Speedy Tuesday!

I hope has been noticing how much they've improved over the last several months/weeks. I know I've seen it in all of you!

This week we will be working on endurance and our speed at the end of run or race effort.

If you've ever heard the term "Finishing Kick" this is what they're talking about.

Our workout will start with our longest distance of 1600 meters followed by 1200, 800, 400 with 400 meters recovery between each distance.

The idea behind a workout like this is that you'll start off with your longest distance and slowest goal pace and then as the distances get shorter your goal pace will increase.

This will increase your VO2 max level and your physical and mental ability to finish strong during a run or race.
It also trains you towards that elusive..."negative split" which is when you finish at a faster pace than you started.

As always we will also enjoy our warm up laps and...DRILLS!

    it didn't rain on us! It was actually a perfect day for running. We had a great group and plenty of free high fives!
