Gina's 6 x 1000 Interval Workout
Early season workouts are all about the threshold interval. Some might call them 'cruise intervals' because of their nature. Here the NCAA defending champions, the Villanova women, do a 6 x 1000 threshold workout just over 2 weeks out from their first race of 2010. The catch is, they have to run a pace they can hold on just one minute rest.
Coach Gina Procaccio likes to utilize short rest at this point in the season and it helped the Wildcats get atop the podium at NCAA's in cross country last fall and qualify 4 girls for the NCAA 3k indoors. The 1st group in this workout is made up entirely of All-Americans, all placing in the top 22 at NCAAs last year.
