2018 Running Program – Workout #18 – 9/5/18

Hi Everybody,

Weather looks slightly better this week….

Here’s the plan for this Wednesday:

Warm-up  – We’ll break into groups according to current fitness level and do 15-20 mins of easy jogging…or jogging mixed with walking. This should be relaxed. Time it so you are ready for the track at ~6:20PM.

Track workout – choice of one of the 3 workouts…all done together:

  1. 5 x 5 mins @40-45min race effort (pace you could for 40-45 mins if you had to), with 1 min recovery (this is essentially a 25 min tempo run with 1 min breaks)
  2. 5 x 4 mins @30 min race effort, with 2 min recovery
  3. 5 x 3 mins @repeatable pace, with 3 min recovery

Essentially, we’ll be starting an interval every 6 minutes…give or take…so you’ll be able to do anything that works within that framework.

In some cases…I’ll make suggestions as to what might be your best option.

Cool-down – 5-20+ mins of easy jogging or walk/jogging…or walking.  Much like warm-up but doesn’t need to be as long in duration.

Note: All participants will be guided to the appropriate group for both warm-up and track.

Guests and drop-ins welcome…

See you there…

Coach Paul
