May 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to the new monthly version of our newsletter! Below you will find May's Wednesday Workouts, events, and other news. 
If you know of other events or interesting news, please let us know and we will update this post!

WORKOUT WEDNESDAYS (LVHS track @ 5:30 unless otherwise noted)

May 11: It feels like 5k season, doesn't it? We better get ready. We'll do mid-interval accelerations, moving from I pace into R pace to simulate a surge in a race. It will hurt a lot be really fun.

6 x (2 min I pace + 30 sec R pace + 3 min recovery)

May 18: Hills! You've missed them, I know. Meet at the track at 5:30 and we can jog over as a group to the Vance Dr. or Garner Dr. hill, (or meet us at their intersection with Cascade around 5:45-5:50)

10 x (30 sec hard uphill, 2 min recovery)

May 25: Fartlek-style I pace

Amber will be blowing the whistle (and maybe running at the same time) to signify alternating intervals of I pace (5k race pace) with recovery jogs/walks- the format is continuous running rather than our normal reset to the start line. It helps keep your paces honest :)

***Yoga for Athletes continues through May: Monday night at Ananda Yoga from 7:30 to 8:30. $4 to drop in or $3 if you buy a 10 punch pass. Mats are available at the studio. Doors lock at 7:30, please be on time. Come get your thigh burn on!
