The workout, 12x400m, is a workout many relied on as they build up their speed and strength in the springtime. As you get fitter, we will cut the jog to 300m, then, 200m, then, 100m. You will be able to handle it as you get stronger.
These are shoes worn by Steve Ovett when he won the gold medal in Moscow 1980 in the 800m. I believe this was Nike’s first Olympic medal in track & field. Mr. Ovett also won the bronze in the 1,500m in Moscow. photo courtesy of Nike communications.
