The 20x200m workout is one of my favorites. This is not a real quick workout, more of a pace day. Normally, at the end of the workout, the last five, I pick up the pace, and see what I can do over the last few repeats.
Always warm up well, and now, wear racing flats when doing track work, and make sure that you go back to training shoes for cooldown.
This workout can be made much tougher, by cutting jog to 100m, then, 50m. We will do that later in the season.
This is Brooks ELMN8, version 6. I ran in Brooks Villanova, a blue-green suede upper with pin spikes, in 1975. I broke five minutes for the mile in them six different times, getting to 4:53.00 and 10:56. The year before I had run 6:06 and 12:13 for the mile and 2 mile. Running 14-16 miles a day over the summer had helped me improve. Photo courtesy of Brooks Running
