TRACK WORKOUT for Tuesday, AUG 21 - 6:30 PM - ARLINGTON CENTER
We meet at the Arlington Center Parking Lot again this week, however this time the meet is at 6:30 PM. We will be doing the Bike Path Workout.
Afterwards, some of us will head over to the Blue Ribbon Barbeque (908 Mass Ave, across from Stop & Shop) for some post-workout food. If you can make it, please come join us. They do have vegetarian options. We'll be sitting outside...
Minuteman Bike Path Workout
You have your choice of workouts. Regardless of which one you choose, you will be doing two segments, one out and one back the bike path.
Each segment should be either 3 or 4 miles in length and should be at your goal marathon pace. Marathon pace is probably not easy right now but this should be manageable. Your recovery between segement wil be an easy easy jog for 2 minutes (if you are doing 3 mile blocks) or 3 minutes (if you are doing 4 mile blocks)
Non fall marathoners targeting longer races
Each segment should be 2 miles in length and should be at your THRESHOLD pace. The rest between segments should be two minutes
Those targeting shorter races
Each segment should be 1 mile in length. The "out" segment should be 5k-race-pace or faster. The second segment should be basically all-out. In short, you should try to just hammer this.
