Lactate Threshold & Sprints Running Workout

Changing speeds during an interval running workout can help build race ready fitness in a manageable, less destructive way than just straight up hard, fast intervals.  Lactate Threshold (high-end AEROBIC pace) 1200 meter intervals tire the legs sufficiently - mimicking racing fatigue without being abusive, followed by some shorter, faster intervals 300 meter / 200 meter / 100 meter sprints, challenging the body the same way as the end of the race.

NYC 1/2 Marathon will feature Marathon World Recorder Holder (2:03:59) Haile Gebrselassie

New York, NYC - The New Yord Road Runners announced yesterday that 'Geb' is returning for another NYC 1/2 marathon this March.  NYRR president and CEO, Mary Wittenberg, proudly announced “Haile is a superstar, a legendary champion, and an ambassador for the sport, and we continue to be amazed by him.  To have him back for the second time for the NYC Half-Marathon is a great thrill and a win for this quickly growing event.” Indeed, as it's very rare for Geb to come to the US to race, having him take part in the newly revamped NYC 1/2, is a big score for the NYRR.  As usual, the course is designed to celebrate New York City, as the NYC Half-Marathon will take runners on a loop through Central Park, down Seventh Avenue through Times Square, across 42nd Street, and along the expansive West Side Highway to Battery Park in the heart of the city’s financial district, finishing with a view of the Statue of Liberty.  To read the nyrr's full story, clickety click here  http://www.nyrr.org/races/2010/nychalf/story01.asp
