The Michael Lovato Special

Michael Lovato came to Fort Collins on Monday and share his favorite workout with us. It's a kick in the pants, that's for sure. There was also some discussion about turning this into a pool workout, just divide the distances by four. Other possibilities include an IM swim set... Good luck!

4x400 (100 m recovery)
2x800 (200 m recovery)
1x1600 (400 m recovery)
2x800 (200 m recovery)
4x400 (100 m recovery)

Key is to establish your 1 mile (1600) goal time for the set. Using 6:00 min/mile as an example. Hit 1:30 on the 400's, 3:00 on the 800's and 6:00 on the 1600. Should feel easy at first then get tough.

For the recovery, NO walking. Jog/run it.
