As you begin your taper for the big races, remember where you came from this season. Enjoy the successes and focus on the upcoming events. This is your last hard workout of the week, as you get to relax the rest of the week and enjoy some Turkey on Thanksgiving!

Week 24, Day Two, November 24, 2015:

Warm up, 1-2 miles, stretch, then, get on the track, two miles, sprint the straightaways, jog the turns, try to do it at about your current 5k race pace.

Jog an easy half mile, then, finish up with three 200 meter stride outs, running each one faster than the one before.

Cooldown, 1-2 miles.
