Run 6-8 loops of Strawberry Fields with a 1-minute recovery between each loop. Cool down the opposite way you warmed up. (Approximately 6.2 miles if you are doing 8 loops.)


Run the 6-mile loop counter clockwise at a comfortable pace. For those of you running the NYC Half on Sunday, run your half marathon goal pace from Engineer’s Gate (E. 90th) to 102nd Street Transverse on the west side. (about 2 miles).

This Sunday is the NYC Half Marathon. Good luck to those who are running.
