|JJ and Amy Sporting a Post Speedwork Glow|
There is no sugar coating it...speed work is hard, but the benefits far out weigh the discomfort. You will notice an immediate difference in your power and speed during long runs. It may seem counterintuitive - how can running short distance fast make me faster at running long distances? It's explanation is the miracle of science.
You are not just training your muscles, but also your brain. Recovery between intervals allows us to run multiple bouts faster than we could if we didn't stop and reover. Meanwhile we are tricking our brain into learning to move the body quickly and more efficiently. Fortunately this transfers over when we run long.
To put your best foot forward, join us for speed work sessions on Tuesday nights and share in our post work out glow (and soreness)!
