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 Track - 4 x 1600, 400r, 2 x 400, 200r

Hi Everyone. Big Guy is still in Austin so just me again. Weather will be pretty nice with temperature around 46' and not much wind.

The workout is 4 x 1600, 10K pace, 400r followed by 2 x 400, 5K pace, 200r. This is intended to be strength workout with some finishing speed. As always keep your rest intervals consistent from rep to rep. As is the norm, we will start the workout at 6AM at the Yorktown High School track. Please arrive before that to do your warmup.

Good luck to anyone running the Shamrock this weekend or the clubs rescheduled JFK/MLK 20/5K races. You all should stay in bed tomorrow and get some extra rest tomorrow if this is a target race for you.

Thursday Track- 5-8 x 1000

Hi Everyone. Big Guy will be out of town for the next 3 weeks while he is working at and enjoying SXSW in Austin. I am very happy to be returning tomorrow to be with you all again. Weather will be cold with temps at around 22' but wind pretty light, thankfully!

Workout is 5-8 x 1000 in 5K pace with a 400 rest. This is intended to be a speed workout so the rest interval can be pretty easy but make sure you keep it consistent from rep to rep. As is the norm, we will start the workout at 6AM at the Yorktown High School track. Please arrive before that to do your warmup.

Good luck to anyone running the RnR Marathon or Half on Saturday. You all should stay in bed tomorrow and get some extra rest.
