In addition to helping runners prepare for races, Jack is now trying to help runners enjoy the race experience more through Infinity Running Company Events. He is going to be organizing his first two races, the Dairyland Mile on June 23rd and 24th at 6pm as part of the Tour of America’s Dairyland professional bike races happening in Milwaukee.
Today Jack and I discuss:
- How working on speed by running a timed mile can help a distance runner improve performance
- Why speed reserve is key to improving race times in longer races
- How to train to run a timed mile
- Why a mile race is a great goal for inexperienced runners
- Optimal race strategy for running a timed mile
- What to expect at an Infinity Running Company Event race
- Details on the upcoming Dairyland Mile Race
The Dairyland Mile Race will be a fun community event with live music, food and drinks. The timed mile will be run on the professional bike course in between the Men’s and Women’s professional bike race. Whether you are an experienced distance runner looking to set a new PR, a recreational runner that has a goal to run a fun race, or you just want to see how you stack up compared to your last timed mile in high school, it is sure to be a fun event!
