You say you a) just don't 'do' track, b) you're not 'fast enough' for track, c) you don't race so why bother, d) you've heard only bad things about track or e) all of the above?
Track workouts alternate up-tempo repeats with rest periods (or “intervals”). Some of us go fast while others run slower, but remember: it’s not the speed in the legs but the fun in the heart that counts!
About the Fieldhouse: The track has been totally re-furbished!
It is, however, the same length:approximately 176 yards or 0.1 mile, so the turns are pretty tight. We run in lanes 1 & 2 and use lanes 3 & 4 to pass or for the recovery phases. The Fieldhouse air is rather dry and the temperature cool-to-warm. Restrict yourself to no more that 80 percent of maximum effort. Be cautious, and don’t injure yourself. Listen to your body. This is not the time to try and race. If you are asthmatic, bring your inhaler.
