You don't need a track to get a track workout in. No matter where you are, you can do your speed workout and get in the benefits of an interval workout. Repeat the workout below or mix and match the minutes, for example: 2 mins, 4 mins, 6 mins, 6 mins, 4 mins, 2 mins or 2 mins 2x, 4 mins 2x and 6 mins 2x.

Show us where you did your track workout on Twitter and Instagram. Tag your runs with #HotBirdRun. Have fun!

 

Friday Fun at the Track!

We hit the track this morning with our client (and friend!), Jaema. It was kinda rainy and it was 7am. What happened? We kicked some butt! It was Jaema's first time running an interval set on the track. She's training for lululemon's SeaWheeze Half Marathon in August. We chose this track workout based on where she's at with her training.

Track workouts are a great way to increase your speed, learn proper pacing and build stamina. Today we did a pyramid set: 400, 800, 1200, 800, 400. We aimed for consistent splits. A pyramid track workout is a great way to test your ability to run on tired legs and figure out your pacing for different distances.

Remember, always warm up and cool down with at least a mile. Perform a few dynamic stretches before running your track workout and finish up with some static stretches and a few core exercises.
