The goal of the track workout is to train the body to run faster than it normally would during a longer run. We keep the distances short for this very reason. In running faster, the body develops those fast-twitch muscles we would all die for. By training to run faster, even at these short distances, the body also learns to respond quicker to the brain, helping you to run more efficiently. There is a limited recovery between (this builds endurance!) which will get you through those races where you would otherwise burn out by the end.
All paces are encouraged to come out. Each workout is paced according to your recent/goal race pace. For help calculating your pace based on recent performances, use this helpful calculator.
