I spent yesterday observing the team at Wellesley High School, in Wellesley, Massechuesetts. I wanted Coach Tim Broe take his near fifty distance runners through an 8 x 400 meter workout. There were six or seven different groups running six or seven different paces. Tim Broe is a bit of a symphony direstor, he has to orchestrate different paces, and observe how the runners are doing. He then sends the runners off for weight and core work, and a cooldown.

Enjoy your workout.
