Speed + Play FAQ

Speed + Play FAQ


What time? 5:30 AM 

Where? Franklin Road Academy Track and Field Facility

4700 Franklin Pike, Nashville, TN 37220

Where do I park? You’ll park in the South lot – closest to Franklin Road, and walk up the hill and past the tennis courts to get to the track.

What time do they start? We'll begin an easy warmup at 5:15, do some drills starting at 5:30, and then proceed with the day's workouts. 

How long do they last? We will be done before 7 – your workout will be done before most people’s day has begun!

What do I wear?  Wear your favorite workout clothes and consider a lighter weight shoe than what you typically train in.  Your normal kicks are fine, but rotating a few different shoes allows you to have the right tool for what you want to accomplish. On the track we want to run fast and work on our form so a lighter weight shoe can be a great tool for that. Shameless plug for our sponsor, Adidas - you may want to take a look at something like the Boston or the Tempo.

What should I bring?  Two things are mandatory - a watch and water bottle filled with your fave non-alcoholic drink. My preferences would be water, Tailwind or Scratch.  If  you'd like, consider a towel, too!

What's the weather policy?  Safety is my utmost importance, but last I checked a little rain never hurt anyone. I go by most race policies which is that we will run unless there is lightning in the area. Because our weather is so fickle, I don't typically make a call to cancel until I'm standing on site.  If I cancel, there is no makeup session.

 What if I can't make a session?  Life happens or sometimes work takes you out of town. I don't keep attendance. Try to do the workout, but if you can't do it Tuesday or Wednesday and you have a hard effort planned for the weekend (race or long run) then let it go, friend. 

As a general rule of running, don't try to make up a missed workout or mileage.

How much do I need to be able to run to participate? We will be starting and finishing our program with a 1 mile time trial, so you’ll need to be able to run a mile!

How much will I be running each week? Summer Speed+Play is geared towards shorter, faster distances. We will run a track workout for about 30 minutes and we will have a 15 minute full-body functional fitness program. We’re going to get stronger and faster!
