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.

    Interesting workout! I'll meet everyone at the 72nd Transverse with the 7:15 group. I'm taking it somewhat easy so my plan is to meet Tiffany at 7:30 or so at Engineer's Gate. We will do around 8:30 pace on the Bridle Path with some sprints on the hillier parts whenever possible. BP feels better for running than road does at this point for me! See you tomorrow.

    Recommended workout for July 2: 1 mile warmup, then...

    Uphill sprints, which reinforce good running form and develop neuromuscular coordination:
    1. 2 x 100m uphill
    2. 2 x 100m uphill (skip these if new to uphill sprinting)

    MOST RUNNERS (including marathoners and non-marathoners with a solid base): We will pick a five-mile loop with two long hills in it. Do these five miles at estimated or goal marathon pace, but on the long uphills, surge to 15K pace.

    IF RELATIVELY NEW TO SPEEDWORK: 5 miles at just slower than estimated or goal marathon pace.

    TRACK MEET SPECIALIST WORKOUT: 800m @ goal 1-mile race pace w/1:00 recovery. 2x400m@ 1-mile race pace w/30 seconds recovery.

    Everyone should finish with 1 mile of easy jogging to cool down.

    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.
