Week 6

All rests are 30 seconds, except the 200s which are 45 seconds.  How fast can you run that second 200?  Might as well find out.  Also, consider treating the first 100 in the 2nd and 3rd sets as an acceleration strider so that you don't go from zero to sprint on cold legs.

Week 2     

Stride into the first run of each set to make sure your legs are warm after the longer breaks.  You should be able to turn in slightly faster 200 times this week due to the rest structure.  The 100s will be fun because you'll be able to get up to full speed.

Target times: gals, shoot for <62 on the 300s and <40 on the 200s; guys shoot for <52 seconds on the 300s and <34 seconds on the 200s.  Of course, faster is better as long as you are consistent across runs.  As a variation, you could run the 200s in a three person relay… how fast can you run three miles?  The variation provides slightly more rest so you’d better be burning up the track on the runs.
