CONDITIONS: Surprisingly cool - much to do with the front which came through earlier. Temperature 68*, Humidity 70%, Wind 15mph N
PARTICIPANTS: MB, Suzanne, Joe
WORKOUT: Warm-up - 2x 1mi road loop, 10x 100m striders
Main set - 17x-to-20x 160m (40m recovery) @ "fresh" pace
NOTE: Since the "spring racing season" is almost at an end, the focus is on maintenance. Usually that means "boring, meat-and-potatoes" running. The summer heat and humidity will make even the easiest of efforts seem much more difficult.
Effort-Based Training: - short periods of stress, followed by rest, is the key to increased fitness - workouts will leave you tired, but not so tired you could not do the same workout in two-to-three days
Tempo Runs: - teach the athete to run relaxed at efforts close to racing effort - teach the body to use lactate more efficiently
Long, Steady Distance: - develops the cardiovascular, mental & musculoskeletal systems - speeds are slower than racing or track training efforts
These elements are research-proven, race-proven, elemental & effective parts of F.A.S.T.'s training.
