I always loved doing stride outs on the grass, it was a great way to get some shake ups in. One of my favorite workouts was at San Jose City College’s baseball field. I would do 20-40 times 200 yards, around the baseball fields past outfield. Easy ont he legs, and great way to get the leg speed going. It was my go to workout on the Thursday before a Saturday track race in college.
