The month of February is actually the best month for speedwork–not too cold usually, but always cool, which is perfect for speedwork.

Tues., Feb. 5 – 600 meter repeats timed with the track clock.  Do 4 to 6.  Four repeats is a total of 1.5 miles.

Tues., Feb. 12 – Corner to corner (our new routine). Do the north and south sides of the track at close to top speed, then slow way down for the east and west sides of the track. Keep going for 20 to 30 min.

Tues., Feb. 19 – 300 meter repeats with rest in between.  Do 6 to 8.  Eight total is equal to 1.5 miles.  This is the fastest routine we ever do.

Tues., Feb. 26 – Ladders – short one minute routines accelerating from 60% effort to 90% effort for each routine.  Then start over.  Do 5 to 7 rotations of 4 min. for each rotation.  No stopping in between.

Thur., Feb. 28 – Our new Thurs. evening workout.  Do 800 meter repeats using the clock.  800 meters is roughly equivalent to 1/2 mile.

All workouts start at 6:30 pm at the Drayson Center outdoor track, but you can come 15 or 20 min. early for warmups.

We will have race reports.  Bring your medals.
