Thursday Track - 3-4 x 1600, 2 x 400

Hi Everyone. Might be a little wet tomorrow morning but doesn't look too bad and the temps still relatively cool. The workout tomorrow is as follows:

3-4 x 1600M @ 10K pace. 400M recovery. Finish with 2 x 400M @ 5K pace, 200M recovery

One of our go-to strength workouts with some finishing polish for that kick at the end of your next race.

In racing and other club news this week ...

Rodrigo Vellon ran another 10K over in Spain, the Carrera Nocturna de Piedrabuena. His time this week was 38:19. The race was Saturday night (Nocturna) and after Rodrigo spent the day sightseeing with visiting Kyle and his wife Diane. No wonder Kyle ditched our workout last week ;) Nice work Rodrigo.

At the Lawyers Have Heart 10K Kevin Cunningham turned in a solid 47:22 with a strong negative split. Way to go Kevin.
