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 at the 72nd street transverse by Bethesda Fountain. There we'll 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).

A note on warm ups: We do not do a full warm up as a group in Central Park, so we encourage you to show up at 7 p.m. having jogged an easy mile or two ahead of time.

If it's your first time meeting us, feel free to come a few minutes early with any questions.  There are many other groups who meet on 72nd St so look for the one with folks in Whippet singlets.

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 JackRabbit Store (formerly New York Running Company) at the Time Warner Center, which stays open until 9pm:  https://www.jackrabbit.com/info/locations/store/new-york-running-company-time-warner-center

    Recommended workout for February 7:

    Warm up 1.5-2 miles. (Do this on your own before meeting us in Central Park.) Then...


    ALL RUNNERS: 3-6 mile Lactate Alternation Run. A Lactate Alternation Run is a continuous run changing speeds every half mile between 10-15 seconds faster than half marathon pace and 15-20 seconds slower than half marathon pace, with no rest between pace changes. Well trained runners should reach 5-6 miles; runners who are building a base should stop at 3-4 miles.
    . Everyone should finish with a 1-2-mile cooldown jog.
