    Wednesday Night Track Workouts

    Welcome to the FTRT Wednesday Night Track Workouts. In conjunction with our weekend long runs, these workouts aim to turn the casual runner into the competitive racer, and the competitive racer into a winner.

    Participants tend to run long repetitions, fast but not too fast, with a tightly-controlled rest or interval period. The key to success in these workouts over the long term is to run them at a controlled pace, and not to race against yourself or other runners. Consistency, not spikes and burn-outs, is the key to success.

    From mid-March to early-November, we meet at the Harper College outdoor track for interval training. During winter, we meet at Xtra Mile Running Schaumburg store for Fartlek and hill workouts. Whether you are training for your first 5K or your 40th marathon, all runners are welcome to come train with us.

    Please note that FTRT does not always have first dibs on the track and from time to time it is closed with little or no notice.
