We'll do our standard 2 laps around the upper track followed by a few drills to get the legs moving. Starting the TT as close to 7 as possible, I'd say.
We have our 2-mile time trial at track this week, Wednesday, Feb. 19th...GET EXCITED!!
Meet at Kezar track at our usual time, 6:45pm at the bleachers for drills and warm-up.
The purpose of the 2-mile assessment is to establish base pacing for future track workouts and it serves as a benchmark indicator as we seek to improve your run speed and efficiency. It doesn't matter if you're a sub-5 minute mile (what?!) or a 15 minute mile - this is a personal assessment to help you improve as an individual runner.
Format is straight forward - you will time yourself running two miles (8 laps) at the fastest pace you can hold for 2 miles, i.e., an "all-out effort." Note your one-mile split and finish time. First one to puke gets a pair of GGTC socks! (kidding...of course...muahaha!)
Tips from Coach D2:
Come to track with rested legs (or as rested as can be for triathletes), a can-do attitude and a smile. Bring warm clothes to wear following your workout. Eat balanced meals through the day beginning with breakfast. Avoid high/heavy fat foods and high protein lunches that can slow down/inhibit digestion.
If you miss track and do this assessment on your own, you may send your results to Coach D2 firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the track pace roster and made available at track practice.
See you out there!
