2022

Daylight savings time has ended. Now the evenings are dark and the times for work-outs are short and cool. With the cooler days, our muscles are tighter, so we are transioning to slower paced, longer, intervals with short recoveries.

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 through the main turnstile on Olive Avenue. But it has been locked, so 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

The suggested workouts are:
