It's back to shorter speed this week with the workout being the Lake run of 10 x 2 minutes on and two minutes off. We start with a 2 minute warm-up.
I took this article from the NYRR site. The 200m bursts that they mention are similar to the 30 second strides that I preach about. And you don't have to be 40+ to benefit from strides. Just to review strides are 30 second bursts followed by a 1 minute recovery. Do them in the middle of any non-speed training run and do 6 repeats. Accelerate slowly and focus on form. You'll get a lot of benefits for 3 minutes of hard running.
Congratulations to out milers Emily, Mary, Karen & Tom for their performances at the 5th Ave. Mile.
