Hansons Brooks Simulator Workout: 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials Training – I love watching these videos of elite athletes like Desiree Davila training for the Olympic Marathon Trials. It is quite humbling to see how fast they are, but also very cool. Also very cool to see them running through neighborhoods, dodging traffic, garbage trucks, etc.
Description: A video by www.Vo2maxProductions.com . Desiree Davila and her Hansons-Brooks Distance Project teammates run the fabled marathon Simulator workout of 26.2km (16.28 miles) at Marathon Goal pace. It is the hardest workout of their training segment leading into the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials (which will be in Houston in 4 weeks). Video includes paces, 10k splits and post-workout comments.
