Short Interval (Monday 5:30pm): “Aller”
2 Rounds: 200m, rest 30 sec, 200m, rest 30 sec, 100m, rest 15 sec, 100m, rest 15 sec, 200m
Rest 4:00 between rounds
Total Distance: 1600m Scoring: Score TWO separate rounds
WOD Notes: Control your opening 200m pace. This workout gets rough once you get into the 100s. Focus all your attention on pushing the 2 x 100 FAST!!
WOD Math: Your 200m pace target should be faster than your mile PR pace. Your 100s should target your 400m pace or faster.
Long Interval (Thurs 5:30pm): “NORCAL FIBER”
6 x 600 meters
WOD Notes— The purpose of the opening 300m is to create muscular fatigue. The 100m is to increase the number of recruited fibers. The final 200m teaches you to use those recruited fibers when fatigued.
This is not a jog, walk, run workout.
This is a HARDER, HARD, HARDEST workout.
But WAIT!!! You’re not done!!! Load up the sleds for MORE muscle recruitment! Sled Loads M=4 x 45 F=2 x 45, 2 x 25
FINISH with 4 x 50m sled push with 200m recovery jog between first efforts
WOD Math—go to http://www.coolrunning.com. You will need to refer to your 400, 800, and 1600m PR paces for this WOD. See pic below for the details! Follow the SAME format for the 300m @ 800 pace and 200m @ 400 pace.
*Please figure your pace PRIOR to coming to class! You WILL NEED a watch!
