Half and Full Marathon Training! Week 1 of 12

UPDATE: I am canceling thus event due to lightening.
The week of August 17 starts my half-marathon training. Wednesday is one of the days I'll be running, so why not Meetup? Each week we'll do a different workout- could be intervals on the Edison bridge, sprints at Lakes Park, maybe even some calisthenics...as well as long runs (obviously). I'll post the planned workout each week. The goal is to build each week so that we are finely tuned machines by the half-marathon on November 9!

The first run will be a choose your own distance at Lakes Park...something simple to start off the training and see what distance you are comfortable with. I plan on doing 7 miles.

    I'm calling it off. Still too much thunder and lightening by me. I'm only about 8 miles from the park. Nicole will have to get wet on front of us some other time!

      Agree. Can do a little rain & some heat but 50,000 deg lightening is a little too stimulating - lol. Anyone for Fri a.m.? Ill set up a meet for bridge hills^v^v^v^v

    I apologize for anyone who may have traveled far but you never what kind of weather Florida has this time of year. I will schedule a re - run for Friday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
