Tuesday Track Workouts

Schedule for April and May 2021

April-May 2021.pdf

Below is the tentative schedule for April and May 2021 Tuesday track workouts.  Track repeats are run each Tuesday at the Furman University Track.  Warm-up begins at the PAC at 12:20pm with repeats typically performed on the track beginning at approximately 12:40pm.  For those that do not have access to a track, a flat section of road that avoids 90 degree turns or a public trail can work as a suitable substitute for track-type workouts.

All workouts include 5 min. of dynamic drills prior to your run; even before you start your warm-up. A description of the 5 dynamic drills is provided on page 224-226 of Run Less Run Faster*.  After a 10 to 20 min. warm-up of easy jogging, include four repeats of 100 meters of drills and strides. After doing approximately 10 meters of high knee lifts, gradually accelerate for 80 meters until you reach approximately 90% of full speed and then decelerate over the final 10 meters. Recover for 30 seconds or less, then repeat in the opposite direction.  Repeat the same sequence substituting butt kicks for high knee lifts.  A description of these two drills is provided on pages 65 in Run Less, Run Faster*.

Unless specified, use the FIRST Key Run #1 target times for these workouts (see Run Less, Run Faster* pages 80-84).

These workouts are different than those in Run Less, Run Faster*, you can complete the workouts listed in the book or feel free to try these workouts.  The recovery interval (RI), which is indicated in parentheses, may be a specified time interval or a distance that you walk/jog.

After your repeat workout on the track, a cool down is important.  Jog slowly for 10-15 minutes.
