"Deek Session" Workout
This is one continuous 4800 meter run on the track (or 5400 or even 6000 if you feel up to it). THe pace alternates between 5k Race Pace (for 400 meters) and "float" pace (for 200 meters". "Float" pace is normal training pace. It is *not* a warmup jog. It is not even a recovery jog. Just go from hard into what you would normally do for an average 10 mile training run. Then go right back into hard.
It is easy to lose track during this workout so think of this as 8 sets of (400 hard, 200 float). That is 4800 meters total
Anyone running over 50 miles per week, make it 9 sets (5400 meters total)
Anyone running over 60 miles per week, make it 10 sets (6000 meters total
