Workouts are designed to teach the following:
1- The best FORM for YOU to use in running.
2- Learn negative splits.
3- Learn to run FASTER, while reducing your recovery time.
4. Build up SLOWLY.
Start with 2,4 or 6 400’s with a 200 recovery. Slowly increase by 2 each week as you FEEL that you progress. When you are capable of running 12×400 with a short recovery, then you graduate to 800’s. Drop 2 of the 400’s and add 1 800. As you progress and are able bto handle the added load you can add 1 800 and drop 2 400’s. Continue until you can do 12×800 with a 400 recovery or less.
After this we can go to mile repeats. Do not rush the advancement. With this technique YOU WILL GET FASTER, but not instantly.
Remember what the workout is designed to do.
