East Track Banquet – June 4!

Hello East Track,
This Thursday we are going to host a virtual google hangout to help send our seniors off properly. Coach Kohuth and myself will speak about the seniors, we will also let the seniors and their teammates say some words if they would like. I will send out the google hangout link Thursday morning. It is open to all East Track Athletes and your families if they’d like to attend. If you have a senior on our team and have not yet emailed me pictures and a short bio, please do so as soon as you can. This will be a very informal event, but gives us one last opportunity to gather as a team.
Details below. Thank you!!
East Track “Banquet”
When: Thursday, June 4th @ Noon
Where: “Google Hangout” – link will be provided

Distance Workouts for the week of 4/6-4/12

Distance Workouts 4/6 – 4/12 Distancing Workouts 4:6 to 4:12

 

Monday 50 minutes maintenance run. (40 minutes JV)
Tuesday 15 minute warm-up.  6 x 400m at 800m race pace. Full recovery (whatever you need, probably 4-5 minutes). 15 minute warm-down.
Wednesday 50 minutes maintenance run. (40 minutes JV)
Thursday 50 minutes maintenance run. (40 minutes JV) plus 10 x 100m uphill
Friday 15 minutes maintenance.

4 x 5 minutes tempo running 3rd minute of each tempo at 5K race pace (so 2min tempo, 1 min fast, 2min tempo), 5 minutes easy running between each interval. 10 minute warmdown

Saturday 75 minute run
Sunday rest

 

  • Since you may not have access to a track, you may need to run these intervals as a fartlek, or you may set up your own course on a trail or field and run for an equivalent amount of time or estimate the distance. For instance, if a 200m sprint normally takes you 40 seconds, simply sprint 40 seconds on a trail, road or field. 
  • Hang in there! We know it is hard to stay motivated with no races in the immediate horizon and the likely cancellation of the season. Hopefully these workouts give you a taste of something normal from our pre-shelter-in-place lives. All training is cumulative – training done now will help you in future seasons. We miss you.
