-then run 30 seconds faster/followed by 30 seconds slower, up the long hill from The Park all the way to the tippy top of the infamous Darden hill (I’ll explain the course in detail on Wednesday).
-Depending on how you’re feeling (and how much mileage you’re used to) you can either finish with that and head back to the track parking lot OR take an active jog back down the long hill and run another one. Yes!
*2 mile time trial, if you would like to see where you’re currently at. We will do it down at The Park (~3.5 loops).
*New? Then please, by all means, call or text me BEFORE Wednesday morning, so we can keep you safe by finding the right amount of “speed”. This is VERY important.
