Mile at Washington Park
Speed is moving back to Washington Park this week. We will meet at 6 pm at the picnic shelter near the playground. This week we will be doing a mile for time. The course will go from the the 1.25 mark of the women’s distance festival to the .25 mark. We will do our normal warmup plus some build up strides. Hope to see you all there Breaking News: the man who filed a suit against a major airline for losing his luggage has lost his case.
What is our Speed Group’s blood type? Be Positive! So this will be our last speed workout on the track for 2021. Next week and for all of September we will meet at the Washington Park picnic shelter. This week we will be doing a ladder workout. The distances will be 100/200/400/800/400/200/100 Speaking of being positive, I fell down the stairs today and I thought, “Wow, I really fell down those stairs fast!”
8 x 400 meters - Race Pace

This will help you learn to develop strategies to feel relaxed and know your correct pace. We will do our normal warmup and cool down. Hope to see you there.
