Monday Morning Getting on Track!

Running on the track is completely different than going for a 3 mile run and initially it can feel a little foreign. But there is a real benefit to it and it can be a real confidence booster to your running. The goal of this particular workout is to develop strength and power as well as create more confidence in taking on hills. This will really enhance and compliment what you are already doing on your other run days. Come on out and join us. You'll be happy you did.

    I really wasn't sure how much I was up for this mornings workout or excited about the rain, but it really made a big difference having so many partners in crime. There might not have been many smiles, but everyone was working hard. Thanks for the numerous encouragements at the east end bleachers and for Nanc and Annie's pacing. You are all awesome to get up so early and braving the elements! See you on Wednesday! :-)

    Hope you are all having fun on this fine Monday morning. Perfect weather for track! I'm on the bus going to work. Otherwise I would be there..... Hopefully next week if life and injuries do not get in the way.

    Looks like a great group for the morning. We are only missing about 15 of our regulars, so perhaps their RSVP button on their computers is jammed. My last track workout before the race! See you all in the morning. :-)

    We've got a special workout for Monday because a lot of folks are getting ready for the Seattle Half Marathon on Sunday. We'll be doing a little bit of a "red light, green light", but at your 1/2 marathon pace. The goal is for you to get that pace locked into your legs. Here's how it'll work out

    4 lap warmup at 5:30
    2 laps of Green Lake Line Sprints
    6 mins @ 1/2 marathon pace
    -- 30 secs @ walking, full recovery pace
    4 mins @ 1/2 marathon pace
    -- 30 secs @ walking pace
    6 mins @ 1/2 marathon pace
    -- 30 secs @ walking pace
    4 mins @ 1/2 marathon pace
    -- 30 secs @ walking pace
    6 mins @ 1/2 marathon pace
    cool down

    Since this is a time based thing, I'll be blowing a whistle when it's time to start and stop, so that you'll all be able to know right away what to do. Based on the times above, we should easily be wrapped up by 6:30.

    See you there!
