April 6, 2010 Track Workout

The taper begins for the Boston Marathon and the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler! 


Let’s warm up on our own, do strides as a group, main workout, and finish with a cool down. 


Strides:  4 x 100 m


For those running Cherry Blossom this weekend, let’s do something light:  8 x 400 m (5 KM pace) with 200 m recovery.


For those tapering for Boston in the next week or two, may either do something on the short end of the range of 800s or you could do something like 1 x mile @ half marathon pace followed by 1 x mile @ marathon pace.


As always, please feel free to tailor the workout to your needs!
