  • Bumping up VO2 Max

    Posted on March 20th, 2009 CoachGreg No comments

    This morning’s workout was with just one athlete. Purpose was to push the envelope of VO2, in order to increase overall speed. 

    800 m warm up

    3 x 1200 @ 2-mile race pace - 3 minute recovery

    800 m cool down

    Athlete said it was difficult to run in the dark by herself with no one else out there. She was definitely winded as she finished each 1200 m interval and needed every second of the 3 minute recovery before getting back out on the track.
