2022

We are on standard time. The days for work-outs are shorter and colder. With the cold, our muscles are tighter, so we transitioned to slower paced, longer, intervals.

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 lengths. Recovery periods should last until the legs are no longer tired. If recovery is no longer possible, end your workout.

Access to the Lincoln Hi track is available now through the main turnstile on Olive Avenue. If it is locked, you can climb over the 8′ tall turnstile. If you are afraid of heights, you can try some nearby gates or enter the on campus parking area from the opposite side of the campus at the intersection of Wabash Ave and Garden Drive
