Thursday Night Tempo

Ok, this is going to be a "mixed bag" workout because runners of different levels tempo in different ways. We will usually jog over to the CNU track [masked] miles, route depending); check the comments section for details each week. For my very long tempos I will be running on the road since the track can get a touch boring for distances over 3 miles or so.

 A tempo is a "speed" workout, but it is designed to train speed endurance rather than VO2Max (Intervals). For beginning runners tempo running would comprise of repeats of moderately hard effort running that last 4-10 minutes, followed by 2-4 minutes of easy running. 2-3 repeats is more than enough. More advanced runners that race some and run regularly will run  from .75-2 miles at between half marathon and 10k pace, with 800m (1/2 mile) recovery jogs, and would do 2-4 repeats. Advanced runners have your own program, just join us!

I will post my particular workout in the comments section a few days out. If you need help or advice, contact me and I will help you if I can. Otherwise I will refer you to a coach!

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we know to expect you! 

 Run Happy!!

    My plan is 3x "hill repeats", running up and down the hill behind the parking lot. I will go fast on the uphill leg. This makes the fast section about a mile for a total of 6 miles with 3 fast miles. I'll finish with 6x50m hill sprints near the parking lot. This is a fun workout everyone can get involved in!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
