Repeats 2x200, 1x400

200/400 Repeats are designed to improve running economy and form. Repeats are fast, done at 1 mile race pace. You should take a long enough recovery so that you are completely recovered before you start the next repeat. If you are having a hard time keeping the pace as the workout progresses, take a longer rest.

(200M is 1/2 lap and 400M is 1 lap)

-------------------------------------------------

One set =
200M (with a 400M Recovery jog),
200M (400R),
400M (800R)
