9.30.13: AG Track @ 6pm
9x 400m Repeats
The last time we ran 400m repeats, we ran 6 intervals but decreased the amount of rest. This time we’re going to increase the number of 400′s while adding back the rest. While speed is important, the purpose with this workout is to increase our endurance threshold. And while you want to run hard, the goal of this workout is to run all 9 intervals, even if that means decreasing your speed. You’ll want to try and maintain a consistent speed throughout in order to make sure you can complete all 9 rounds at a strong pace. If you can, strive for negative splits. Look at these in sets of 3 and work to decrease your pace each set by a few seconds. For example, you could run the first 3 at a 1:45, then the next 3 at a 1:40, then the last 3 at a 1:35.
In the end, this will make you faster when we back down on the number of intervals.
