I spend a lot of energy telling runners not to run. So many want to come to the track to "get some speed" as if they are stopping by the local pharmacy. Last night we ran a 2 mile warm up 10 striders on the track, 2500 meters making it feel like the first half of a race then right out to the river for 6 miles then back to the track for a similar 2500 meters. I would rather have gone for a varied pace run up the mile and a half pine-needled path to the skyline trail then back to the beautiful lake...and not go near the track, but such a run is a fantasy after work on a Tuesday in the dark in Boston. So I have to dream up "workouts" to simulate running in the country side while waiting telling these eager runners not to race each other in hard 400s.
We have adopted Jack's lingo to distinguish repetitions from intervals and we do hill bounding but I haven't figured out why everyone has to speak with a Japanese acent while slowing leaping up hills.
