|Last week's crew, popsicles in hand!|
We'll meet at the grass track again this week (behind the pool on 9th St), it just feels nicer than the hot black track. After a good warm-up, we'll do something of a race simulator this week by starting out with T pace, working into I pace and finishing strong with R pace. Here's the plan:
8 minutes T-pace followed by 2 minutes rest
5 minutes I-pace followed by 3 minutes light jogging recovery (just make sure you're not standing around!)
1 minute R-pace with full rest (as long as it takes to recover)
2 x 30 seconds R-pace with full rest in between
COOL DOWN 10-15 minutes!

There is a TON going on this summer and we're so thankful for all of the community events that pop up every weekend! This week, we're again not having a trail run because the Buffalo Tracks Running Club is hosting a FREE running camp in Riverton on Friday (for those who have summers off) and a Challenge Run in Ethete on Saturday! The race is also free unless you want a t-shirt (that'll cost ya $15). Both events are kid-friendly, so hopefully that makes it easier for a lot of folks to attend!
Here's Friday's itinerary (
Friday, July 18 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Iron Works Gym in Riverton
9:20-10:30 Group run
