For some guys, running can be torturous. But, if you're a cardio naysayer, then we dare you to try these track workouts and see if you still feel the same way. Designed by Bobby McGee, a 30-year endurance coach with expertise in middle distance, cross country, road, marathon, and triathlon coaching, these workouts will contribute to your overall fitness and athleticism. And if you are already a runner, they'll help you improve your speed and endurance on longer runs and maybe even hit a PR this fall marathon season.
Arrange these five routines throughout a seven- or 10-day training regimen so you can sufficiently recover and ward off injury. Follow the warmup below before each track routine. Some workouts will have additional drills.
Walk, then skip lightly or run for five to 10 minutes. Then, complete a few dynamic mobility drills: Heel walks, knee hugs, quad tugs, lunges, butt kicks, etc.
