Workout 2: Straights and Curves for 50m

Where: Track
Straights and curves is a classic speed workout typically done by jogging the curves of a track and then striding out on the straights for 100m. We take that same concept but just mark off 50m of fast running on each straight. Doing this allows for more recovery time and a faster leg turnover. You can start with as little as two laps and work up to four laps.
