Pick-Me-Up Track Workout

Pick-Me-Up Track Workout

📅December 10th, 2014, 16:50

Now that the weather has cleared and it has warmed up a bit (for now), we can get back to some normal training. So we are going to take advantage of the good footing and get some faster/high quality running in. This week’s workout is track oriented and will focus on getting some of that speed back that we may have lost while the snow and ice have been on the ground. It can also be quite a lung burner ūüėČ

Track Workout: (400 meters, 300 meters, 200 meters, 100 meters) x 3-5

 The 400 meter segment ran at a hard but controlled effort. (Mile pace)

 The 300 meter segment ran similar to the 400 but with the effort increased a fraction. 

The 200 meter segments ran at a fast pace, but not quite at a sprint. (400-800 pace)

the 100 meter segment should be ran at a sprint.

 For rest, jog the amount you just ran. Ex: after the hard 400 segment, jog 400. Also, be sure to jog 400 or rest 3-5 minutes in between sets.

Warm-up and cool-down as needed.

If you haven’t been doing much speed work, be sure to ease into the workout and progress to the pace you want to run. Get a good warm-up in with a good amount of strides to prime those fast twitch muscles! Now go and conquer! #youbetter
