Anyone that knows Coach Ivan, knows he walks the talk.
And in this case, he runs it as well.
Always overheard reminding his athletes, Coach Ivan says: Train hard, but train very smart. Do things the right way. Quality over quantity.
As Ivan says, "They [track workouts] are also more specific because the athletes won't have to be guessing or looking at the watch for distance, meaning how much distance left or half." Furthermore, running on the track is a lot easier to count, just like swimming in the pool.
Hence, it becomes a solid opportunity to focus on pace and form, and creates a controlled environment to gauge your stamina against the fatigue curve and benchmark a tidy set for future reference.
So get out there and give it a whirl!
