400 meter repeats

This is a very simple workout but it is extremely effective.  Below is a video on good running technique to help prevent injury and increase speed and endurance.  I would highly reccommend trying some of the drills they mention as a warm up and using these 400 meter sprints as a way to practice good technique.  It will only make you better in the end.

Workout:  

  • Mark out a 400 meter loop.  Your rest time will be double your work time so a 1:2 ratio.  Use a stop watch to time each sprint so you know exactly how much recovery you get and you can track your consistency.  The goal for this weekend is 5 of these 400 meter repeats.  Have fun!
