WOD Saturday 02.11.13

workout of the day WOD

If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough.
— Mario Andretti

Today get to the track and get ready to drop the hammer. If you can’t get to the track then run around a 400m block.

Warm-up:

Ease into a 1-3 mile run that gradually increases in intensity. Towards the end, throw in a few 20-second accelerations.

Main set:

Run the following distance intervals at or above race intensity. Recover for half the amount of time it took you to run the interval — a 2:1 work-rest ratio.

400-800-1200-1600-1200-800-400

(repeat optional)

400 meters is 1 lap at the track, a little less than one quarter of a mile. If you are running with GPS you can simulate this workout with some creativity.

Cool down:

800 meter jog, stretch

This is an intense workout, so feel free to half it if you’re a beginner.
