Thursday Track - 6-8 x 800, 400 rest

Hi Everyone. Big Guy is on travel this week and I can't make it tomorrow morning due to an early morning appointment. Mary Kusler has the gavel and will get things going. Please be nice to her :)

Speed workout on the docket for this week. 6-8 x 800 at 5K pace with a 400 rest. Temperature will be right at 70' which is not bad given what we had but it will be extremely humid (94%). Make sure to bring fluids and drink them as you need along the way.

As always, be warmed up in advance fo the 6:00AM start

Only a couple race results I know of from this past week...

At Riley's Rumble HM up in Montgomery County Li Fang won the Masters Women's competition with a time of 1:36:28. This an incredibly hilly and difficult course so Li's time is really impressive. Hai Nguyen was there, as is his norm, and turned in a solid effort with a time of 1:51:58. Congrats to both of you!

At the PVTC track meet Paul Ryan won his AG in the mile with a time of 6:30. He was also 2nd in his AG in the 3000 with a time of 13:22. Paul is still feeling rusty from his long vacation cruising the northern seas of Scandinavia. I am certain he will be back chasing the 6 minute mark again in very short order. Still very nice work for Paul.

The next club race is the Steve Thompson 8K next Tuesday, Aug 6 followed by the Paul Thurston 4.5M on Aug 20. No updates on the club picnic and Cross Country race yet. I will let you know the minute there is any news. Go to http://dcroadrunners.org to register and for most up-to-date info.
