Workout of the Day
Every 12 minutes for 36 minutes (3 sets) of:
Run 1 Mile (1600 Meters) as quickly as possible.
Perform this on a regulation track if possible. Each set should be a max effort. I don’t want to see that you can pace, I want to see that you can bust your ass, and then repeat the effort. There will be drop-off…I want to see (and want you to see) what that drop-off looks like. I also want to see you PR your timed mile…at least once.
Please don’t make me say that you’ll be dead to me if you don’t complete this. I would like to believe that saying it once underscored my desire for you to accept uncomfortable training sessions, to embrace training in a way that might be unfamiliar and highlight weaknesses. Our community has come to love the barbell – which is awesome – but we cannot forget that to succeed in this sport you must have a huge aerobic base and exorbitant mental fortitude. Get to the track, take some friends with you, and get after it.
