Thanks Rudy, now we have a group that wants to be on the track posting times and you are in it. I thought I was going to do 400's but my girls are too beat up. So on Wed. I have a workout I do with them that Carl Moore (non ap coach) told me about. Its a two person relay where you do a 200 and pass a baton. You than cut across the middle of the track and accept the baton from your partner. It goes on as long as you want it. Usually do this for the distance divas, not sprinters.

Good to see you last weekend and share some tough orienteering. Got started today with my own speed workout as I couldn't see a way to do the 200m relay. Anyhow great to have some virtual training partners.

A few years back I ran a 5-person 10K relay, 200m legs. We were trying to break the world record for 10K. Basically it came to 10x200@31 2:04R. Got pretty brutal by the end, but we did do it. Of course, now the 10K world record is faster than that; we'd have to run 30's.

Can you believe that to run a world record in the 10k you have to run that fast...WOW !!
Those guys running the marathon do 26 miles avg. per mile faster than I can do one.

Because the start is downhill, you can see the first quarter mile of the Boston course from the start line. I crossed the line at 61 seconds and the leaders were already out of site around the bend!
