We are hosting weekly "track" workouts at Prospect Park every Thursday evening. The workouts will be identical to the East River Park Track workout of the week, which will be posted at least 24 hours beforehand. Although there is no track at Prospect Park, we'll find the flattest part of the park to do the scheduled workout. All paces are welcome. Please comment in Talk about this Meetup if you have any questions!
We will meet at 7pm in the same location as the Tuesday night run on the 72nd transverse overlooking the Bethesda Fountain. Your 1-2 mile warm up run should be done independently before meeting at 72nd. Workouts vary but we generally do short intervals at higher paces than on tempo runs done on Tuesday with jog recoveries in between or oscillating paces between mid to fast end of your personal paces tolerances. If you need a place to drop off a bag the go to location for folks who don’t live near the park is the lockers available at the Jack Rabbit’s store on the 2nd floor of the TWC at Columbus Circle.
Introducing Friday morning runs! It is meant to be an easy run at conversation pace. Typical route is up the east side entering the bridle path at east 85th and follow it around the park finishing at Columbus circle. More often than not we'll add Harlem Hill. Please post your pace in comments. We run rain or shine
Weekend runs are typically reserved for long runs often ranging from 12 to 20 miles, depending on the training plan. Every week features a different route, which will be posted a day or two prior. Runners are welcome to start earlier and/or cut out for their own needs. The route is provided to plan your exit or continuation strategies. PACING BUCKETS When RSVPing, we ask all of you to think about where you fall in the following buckets for your long run paces: 6C – 6:45 to 7:00 7A – 7:05 to 7:20 7B – 7:25 to 7:40 7C – 7:45 to 8:00 8A – 8:05 to 8:20 8B – 8:25 to 8:40 8C – 8:45 to 9:00 9A – 9:05 to 9:20 9B – 9:25 to 9:40 9C – 9:45 to 10:00 10A – 10:05 to 10:20 10B – 10:25 to 10:40 10C – 10:45 to 11:00 When splitting up for the pace groups, we’ll do it in big buckets of 6/7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 pace, and from that point on, we will ask you to identify each other in the sub-buckets of A, B or C. When you bucket yourself for a run, please try to stay within that range for a good portion of the run and help each other during the run. If you are doing a progression, please announce that you are splitting off so others who weren’t expecting faster paces don’t follow. Getting consistent pacing representation across a wide range is extremely difficult but it has to be a collective effort. Please RSVP to the meetups if you’re going to show up even if you are a regular. Please comment with expected distance and pace bucket!
