Workout: Speed Skills***

Goal – hit efforts at 100% effort – balanced by goal to pace self thru entire session and providing quality to the entire session. Speed develops neural muscular system – honing technique – training efficient technique to be intuitive and reflexive. Speed sessions also build specific running strength and power. These short sweet efforts are an opportunity to refine efficiency. On each effort focus on one aspect of technique, and take other efforts to foucs on runnig as a whole, complete movement and feel fluidity, rhythm and glide. These efforts are only a few seconds out of life – make the most of them.
 
Bring a mental mantra to the workout - the mind guides/leads the body.
 
**Workouts performed as a group, with each individual attacking efforts at their individual perception of prescribed exertion level.
