2019

Spring finally came and went. Daylight savings time came. Since it is warmer, the chances of pulled muscles is reduced so we have transitioned to shorter, faster paced work-outs. In April, we began our decrease in miles and increase in our pace. On alternate Mondays we did one lap decreases in miles until the total went back to two from three. Alternate Wednesdays we similarly  stepped to three miles from four. The intervals are faster paced,  so recoveries are longer.

The workouts are intended for about 90th percentile runners. They should be modified to fit individual abilities by either changing the number of intervals or their length. Recovery periods should last until the legs are no longer tired. If recovery is no longer possible, end the workout.

Access to the new Lincoln Hi track is a bit of a challenge. The gates on Olive Avenue are frequently locked. If so, you can climb over the 8′ tall turnstile. If you are afraid of heights, you can enter the on campus parking area from the opposite side of the campus at the intersection of Wabash Ave and Garden Drive. The work-outs:
