Wednesday Track - 6 to 10 x 500m in 5k Pace

Wednesday Night Hawks

Tonight will one of those winter evenings we really enjoy –  with temps in the upper 40s, with little wind and some humidity. Enjoy this while we can!

January 13, 2021 - 6 to 10 x 500m in 5k pace - with 300m jog recovery in between

• Stallions: 5:45 to 6:15 Pace, 10 Intervals
• Wolf Pack: 6:15 to 6:45 Pace, 9 – 10 Intervals
• Gazelles: 6:45 to 7:30 Pace, 7 – 9 Intervals
• Coyotes/MTP Trainees: 7:30 to 10:00 Pace, 6 to 8 Intervals

This is another speed workout guaranteed to build both strength and stamina for your winter (Virtual or hopefully sometime In-Person) races – and let's hope we get some! These are tougher than they look, so try to finish strong - push that last 100, and make sure you focus on form so you run efficiently, effectively, and injury-free. I would ease into these by running the first couple in 8k or 10k pace, but also feel free to crush the last couple in 3k pace if you are still feeling frisky.

Happy running!
