Track Workout - 800s Along the Charles
Objective: 800s done at your best consistent pace train up your body's ability to tolerate the stress of running faster than your maximum aerobic pace.
Notes for performing outside along the Charles River: Start at the first covered bench after the Mass Ave bridge, heading NE along the River. It's about 800 meters to the far end of the float at the last boat house on this stretch of the river (Crimson Sailing Academy). To recover, continue walking or jogging in the same direction for half the amount of time that your running interval took (if your 800 interval took 3:30 - jog for 1:45 - then turn around and continue jogging back to the end of the float at the last boat house. Repeat the 800 in the other direction this time. Continue for 6 (newer runners) to 10 (fit runner training for marathon) times.
