Prospect Park Training Run

We will be doing a Prospect Park training run meeting at the Grand Army Plaza Entrance to the Park (right outside the Park) at 7:00 PM. The planned run will be posted at last 24 hours before the start of the training run. Please post your planned pace for the run so we can make sure everyone will have a companion to run with!

    This will be my first run with you guys, and I'm excited!
    Prospect Park West & 9th street @ 7PM right? (I saw mention of 6:15, which would actually be better).

    Recommended workout for April 9:

    Did you race hard in the SCOTLAND 10K? Then make tonight a recovery run, doing at most 4-5 easy miles.

    Otherwise: 1 mile warmup, then...

    NEW JERSEY marathoners: 3 repeats of 3 miles at marathon pace, with a half mile recovery after each (vary the pace of the recovery to increase the challenge). Finish with 1 easy mile to cool down.

    BROOKLYN HALF competitors: 4-6 repeats of 800m uphill @ 15K pace; slowly jog back downhill to recover. Finish with a one mile cooldown.

    RUNNERS WHO ARE BUILDING A BASE (not much recent speedwork): 2-4 repeats of 800m uphill @ half marathon pace; slowly jog back downhill to recover. Finish with a one mile cooldown.

    BOSTON marathoners: 7-8 mile run, the first half at long run pace, the last 3 miles at marathon pace.

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.
