Tuesday - Track

March-October, starting at 6:00 pm at the Santa Fe High School track.

Hi Everybody,

The weather looks pretty discouraging for tonight.
Last week the 35 mph wind and low temp made the workout difficult.
It's easy to get injured in conditions like that.
So, I thought it would be better to suggest a Farlek workout.

Here's a workout the John Lumley prescribed a few years back.

Warmup :     10 min easy
Main Set: 8 x 3 minutes fast, 2 minutes slow
Cool Down: 10 min easy.

*A lot of people ask me what "fast" means.*
Most coaches prescribe a 5K pace.
A lot of folks haven't run a 5K in a long time.
I suspect 75% of your maximum heart rate is way more appropriate
than any predetermined speed or pace.

If you're not familiar with your heart rate pay attention to your breathing.
Your "fast" running should be fast enough to make it difficult to talk.
Conversely, the "slow" running should be slow enough so you CAN talk.

have fun, Vinnie

We'll discuss the appropriate social distancing and masks at the start.

runners etc.
We 'll determine the pace and distance(s) at the same time.

The traditional Saturday Long Run starts at 8:00 A.M. from the Rail Runner
Stop at the intersection of Zia and St. Francis (3001 South St Francis
