Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 minutes (or less!).
This week’s track workout comes from age grouper Kirsten Sass, who won five national titles in 2015, including the Olympic-distance title at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Chicago. Sass works with coach Suzanne Atkinson and, in 2014, USA Triathlon named her Amateur Athlete of the Year. Read all about her training in our March/April issue (see a preview here and pick it up on newsstands!). Here, we share her favorite track workout.
