We had so much fun Informal Running in NYC ( http://nyc.informalrunning.com/ ) that we started an upstate spin-off in the Capital Region! The Most Informal Running Club, Ever needs more fun, energetic people to bRUNch (run+brunch), trail blaze, and laugh our way through runs at any pace or distance! No fancy gear, race bibs, or ties required :)
Tracks are great places to socialize...and run I suppose. Join TMIRCE: Upstate for some laps around the track! Feel free to do your own thing and give high-fives as you run by or follow the workout of the night (including the high-fives)!
Workouts change each week. Some examples of workouts we do:
1. 100m or 400m or 800m repeats
2. Ascending and descending ladders
4. Special Ks
6. Deck of Cards
-food or drink after?? Suggestions welcome!
Please don't feel intimidated! We welcome walkers and joggers of all abilities :)
Get your rump in shape with stair repeats! We will meet at the steps behind the New York State Museum in the Empire State Plaza and run up and down the stairs for a total of 30 min, doing body weight exercises at the top. Run at your own pace!
Some may wish to explore the ice skating rink at Empire State Plaza right across from our stair workout either before or after.
Join us for the Thursday mid-week tempo run.
We'll start as a group, running West on the Mohawk Hudson Bikeway. We'll start with a 1 mile warm-up jog and then run for exactly 18 minutes (bring your watch?), turn around and run back to the same point and bring it home with a cool down jog. Go whatever pace you like, but try to keep the same pace on the way out and back so that we all cool down together!
Afterward, we'll negotiate post-run food and drinks.
Happy Fall, TMIRCE! What better way to warm up and recover after a run than with the comfort food of a Diner!
FYI Duncan's is cash only and has the most magical donuts!
As always, bRUNch runs are easy jogs at the pace of the slower runners for 3ish miles. If you have any questions or feedback get in touch with [masked] :-)
