Also, Evan's in Salt Lake City this week with Creative Energies, so you're stuck with me. I hope you don't mind!
We'll meet at the high school track at the usual 6:30pm this Wednesday for some tempo work. We're going to shoot for 20 minutes of effort in total followed by some strides.
After a couple of laps for a warm-up, we'll do four intervals: 4, 5, 5, and 6 minutes at T pace with a minute rest in between. The idea here is to encourage proper pacing and build mental toughness. We'll finish by getting some quick turn-over: six 50-meter building strides (starting out slower and gradually building to R pace by the end of each stretch - jogging back to the start for rest).
Saturday Trail Run
This warm weather has me feeling optimistic, so let's shoot for the Middle Fork Trail again. Meet at Bruce's parking area at 8am and bring a camera if you're up for some nice waterfall photos!
Note: If the trail's still as icy as last week, we'll run from Bruce's down the road and do an out-and-back on the Fairfield Hill loop - up and down the trail. Between the north-facing slope and cobbled surface for much of the ridge, we may run into less mud and definitely less ice.
Have an awesome week and see ya'll tomorrow!
Amber and Evan
