Manhattan Weekend Run

  • Time Warner Atrium Entrance

    Broadway/59th St-Columbus Circle
    Subway: A/B/C/D/1/9
    Manhattan, NY (map)

    40.767647 -73.981949

  • ... Flash Weather Note...  Event hosts have invoked the "Single Digit Rule"... under which team practices are reconsidered when the temperature is forecast to be 9 or below.  Tomorrow's 9 am run is cancelled, but athletes are encouraged to do 60 minutes of core and strength indoors, and to run outdoors if you are warm enough.   

    Route

    We'll meet at the TimeWarner entrance, because it's warm.  Then, a *slow* warmup run to Bethesda Terrace for some dynamic stretching, 5-10 minutes of stair climbs, and then break into pace and distance groups.

    The park looks beautiful this time of year, and our groups set a variety of goal distances, so there will be a run pace and distance for everyone.  Usually, run groups go from 6 to 18 miles.  If you are in the mood for 26.2, one of our ultrarunners will no doubt be on hand to keep you company.

    Note that water fountains are turned off this time of year, but if you bring some cash, there will be probably be a vendor somewhere with Gatorade or water.  There is a also a nice cafe opposite Engineers Gate (East 90th Street) with water, hot tea or coffee. 

    Reminder:  Please post your pace and goal distance when RSVPing.

    Michael, a better suggestion would be to come to Brooklyn! We're still holding our run. RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/dashing-whippets/events/155756202/

    The event hosts have spent the day emailing, going on test runs outside, and trying to guess what it will be like Saturday at 9 degrees Fahrenheit... Regretfully, we have decided to cancel the 9 am run -- BUT -- we encourage either: (a) 60 minutes of core and strength indoors, plus climbing the stairs of your apartment building for 30 minutes; or (b) running outdoors tomorrow after 2 pm, when the temperature should be in the upper 20s. Here is a good video from Jay Johnson, with the usual clamshells, leg lifts, fire hydrants, donkey kicks, planks, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXpK3bF9UlA

    Sorry about this, and we all hope next Saturday is a little better.

    6-7 miles/9m pace sounds good to me

    Weekend run routes are always defined by the run leaders and the distance may vary according to their plans. That said, here are some recommended workouts for the weekend of January 4-5...

    SPRING MARATHONERS:[masked] minutes at long run pace

    NON-MARATHONERS IN GOOD SHAPE: 80-90 minutes at long run pace

    IF BUILDING A BASE: 60 minutes at easy or long run pace

    Long run pace is slightly faster than easy, but is still 45-60 seconds/mile slower than marathon goal pace (or your estimated goal pace if you were training for a marathon).

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.
