Share your times, accomplishments and stories to comments. Here is what Karen Harris had to say about her experience on the side lines this weekend: “Sometimes cheering others on at a race is just as valuable as racing itself. I decided to give back today and cheer on some of my favorite runners! I am super proud to be part of such an amazing group of athletes. As a racer, cheers from spectators push racers through their struggles. It was a great chance for me to give back, to my friends & strangers alike! Great job to all who ran the Pitter Pat.” -Karen L Harris
Time Trial Week!!
We have just completed a 12 week cycle of basic CFE WOD’s. We will spend this week testing max efforts at various distances as a finishing point to one cycle and a beginning point to another 12 week cycle. For those of you who have been running with us since January, come and put what you have learned to the test. For those of you who have just started or who may be thinking about starting, this is a great week to test where you currently are in your running abilities and join us more regularly. At the end of the next 12 week cycle we will again perform a TT week.
Short Interval (Mon 5pm, Tues 10AM): For time resting approx 5min in between each effort: 200m 400m 800m 1600m time trial efforts, each one of these is an all out effort go hard!
C2: For time resting approx 5min in between each effort: 250m 500m 1000m 2000m time trial efforts, each one of these is an all out effort go hard!
Long Interval (Thurs 10AM, Thurs 5PM): 5K TT! We will use the 5K Gone Bad course. Please don’t let this distance scare you off this week, just as we normally do we can scale the distance for your running ability.We will warm up as a group and your coaches will be out there to help encourage and push you.
C2: 5K TT (if anyone actually does this mad props to you!)
Long Run (not coached, ideally done on the weekend for the athlete training for an upcoming race or wanting to add a long run into their workouts): For all of my runners training for upcoming 1/2 or full marathons. Use the blog or FB to hook up and get these long runs in together. 10mile TT
