Fartlek

Fartlek:  2-5 x (3 min on, 1 min off, 2 min on, 1 min off, 1 min on, 1 min off).  The 3 min sessions should be between tempo and 5K race pace, the 2 min at 5K race pace or 3K race pace, and the 1 min at mile race pace.  For longer distance race training, keep the paces slower with faster rest.  This workout will work the aerobic and glycolytic systems (for stronger middle and end sections of the race) while being relatively mentally easy. *I will not be at the workout this week (on vacation) but will be back for next Tuesday's workout (January 9th)

**Please note that we will meet at 5:15 while the evenings are dark.  I will continue to explore different options for exactly where we will run throughout the winter season, but we will meet at the Brick Breeden Field House North Entrance by ticketing each week for our warm-up.  I anticipate that most workouts will be to/from/on the Gallagator Trail, the MSU parking structure, and in the hallways of the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, provided we are not in anyone's way.**

Montana Racing Project's Track Club - currently meets every Tuesday at 5:15 at the Brick Breeden Field House North Entrance by ticketing - new location and time for winter season (when the weather warms up, we will meet at Lindley Park at 6:00pm again because the MSU Outdoor Track is not expected to be completed until July).  Mentally prepare for workouts by joining the Facebook group. The following week's workouts will typically be posted on Sunday
