Monday, April 6

Florida week begins with episode 1 of The Program. Follow legendary Gators head coach Mike Holloway inside one of the most storied programs in NCAA track and field history. We'll have workouts and Florida Relays race highlights to complement the documentary. As always, we have a brand new podcast each weekday. 

Tuesday, April 7

Episodes two and three of Florida: The Program are here for your viewing pleasure. The second leg of the story follows hurdler Eddie Lovett, with the finale going inside a dramatic 4x400m at NCAAs. Other content of note: an update to our Ultimate Rankings series-- our way of declaring the best 20 athletes in every event, regardless of gender-- in the high hurdles.

Wednesday, April 8

Call it a Hollo-day. Or just Grant Holloway day. Whatever you choose, Wednesday is dedicated to the Gator who outshined the rest with his combination of talent, energy and charisma. We followed the 110m hurdle collegiate record holder as he did three workouts in one session and then we go inside his record-breaking run at NCAAs this past spring.

Thursday, April 9

It's Flo-Rida day on FloTrack! Just kidding, but the Florida-themed content is still going down for real. Thursday will be highlighted by Gator distance coach Chris Solinsky leading a rep workout in his second season in Gainesville. It's an interesting view at a former great taking on a new challenge as a coach.

Friday, April 10

Friday is movie day on FloTrack. Lincoln will review the 1964 Tokyo Olympics film that showcases the glitz and glamour from the last time the Japanese capital hosted the global event. To wrap up the week, we'll also have a podcast with a special featured guest.

And if all that isn't enough, we have track and field on a nonstop, 24/7 loop on our FloTrack 24/7 stream

Understanding Resting And Maximum Heart Rate

Throughout the past years, business has combined the health and technology industries to create a society where fitness tracking has become a regular pastime. People have become more invested in their health and want fun devices to assist in that. These smartwatches and apps have made it easier than ever to know what your exact heart rate is, how many hours of sleep you get, or how far you run. However, with all the knowledge presented to you, it’s equally important to actually understand what those numbers mean to best achieve all of your fitness goals. A big part of this is knowing the different active and resting heart rate zones. 

Pre-Run And Post-Run Stretches

Stretching before and after your run can add a lot of benefits to your exercise routine. It allows you to warm up your muscles and safely progress into your run and also provides your body time to cool off and continue to activate your muscles. It’s important to set aside a couple of minutes before and after exercising so you can make sure you’re taking proper care of your body. 

The History Of Track And Field

Track and field has been around since the start of the Olympics in Ancient Greece in 776 B.C. It was created alongside religious events and celebrations for the Greek gods where men (no women were allowed) could show off their athletic abilities. From there it spread to the Romans who continued the games until the Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned them in 394 A.D. because of their ties to pagan beliefs.

How To Run Long Distance

Long-distance running is a whole different animal to short sprinting, and it's no secret that it can really kick our butts. Whether it's fatigue, pain, or mental obstacles, there are a number of factors that make long runs seriously challenging. 

Running FAQs: What Time Does It Get Dark?
