Today’s speedwork

The workout started (as usual) from the YMCA at Noon.  An easy run to Washington Park is used as the warmup. 

Today’s speedwork involved hard-paced intervals of 2 minutes followed by 2 minutes of recovery pace.  The route was one complete loop in Washington Park (2 miles).  The purpose of the workout is similar to that of the modern Fartlek (simply a continuous run of a drastically varied pace).

I wasn’t there, but the rumor is that the conditions were pretty brutal.  This explains the poor turn out.  Post your comments below.
