Thursday Morning Track

Identical to Wednesday night track workouts. This is simply an alternative to those that cannot make Wednesday night or prefer morning running. The workouts each week are designed by Coach Ed who leads the Wednesday night group and can be found on the Wednesday night track workouts.  

Group leaders for this workout are Coach Stephen "Big Guy" Easley, a USATF certified coach, and Coach Rich Mendelowitz, a RRCA certified coach. Thursday morning Track Workouts are held at the Yorktown High School track. The Address is 5201 N. 28th Street in Arlington, and the track is around the corner from the school on N. Greenbrier in the Football Stadium. The workout starts promptly at 6:00 AM. Most people arrive to do an easy warm-up together starting around 5:40 and then all do an easy one mile cool-down together after the workout.

Questions can be emailed to Coach Big Guy or Coach Rich.

Thursday Morning Track - 12-20 x 400, 10K pace, 100 rest

Hi Everyone.  Big Guy will be back tomorrow and I will see you there as well.  Gonna be an ok morning with with both dew point and humidity low for this time of year.  The workout is strength based around 400s.  Specifically, 12-20 x 400, 10K pace, 100 rest.  If you are running Saturday nights race you don't want to do this workout.  Talk to me in the morning and we will devise another plan for you.  

As always, workout will start at 6AM.  Please be warmed up and ready to go before 6.  

We had a good showing by our Thursday morning faithful at the July 4 Age-Handicapped 4M.  Some nice performances as always especially since it was a true sweatfest.  Ridiculously high dew point and humidity so more power to all of you that ran well.  Personally, I called it a day during my warmup.

Thursday Morning Track - 5-8 x 1000, 5K pace, 400 rest

Happy 4th to all!  Great to see many of you a this morning's Sweatfest 4M aka the DCRRC Age-Handicapped 4M.  Those may not be the worst conditions we ever run in but they were pretty bad.  In any event, I know many who were not there and some of you crazies that were are looking forward to solid workout on the track tomorrow.  I will be there to keep the show going while poor Big Guy is dealing with hopefully much cooler temps in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The workout will be 5-8 x 1000, 5K pace, 400 rest.  So this is a speed workout and the conditions will be a little better than this morning but not a huge amount.  Please bring cold water or sports drink and remember to stop and drink every couple reps.  

This mornings results are done manually so we won't see them for a couple days.  The only other racing I know of was Christie and Rodrigo in a triathlon over in Spain.  I don't have any details but saw some nice pictures.  They should be back today and at the track tomorrow so we can get an update from them in the morning.  

As always, please be warmed up and ready to start the workout at 6AM.  Look forward to seeing you there.
