NO TMBC - One Mile Virtual Race

Fellow Endorphin Junkies

This week we are going to encourage everyone to run the DCRRC Club One Mile Virtual Race Challenge instead of a separate TMBC workout. You can always add a little Tempo work after you get in your mile if only one mile of full out sprint is not workout enough!  :-) 

Details are on the Club website on the front page at . For those in good enough health to do the one mile virtual race, tomorrow will be a cooler May day - between the lower fifties and lower 60s, with strong wind gusts at time, but little chance of rain. The tracks are still closed, and any virtual will usually need to be done on the Custis/WO&D/Bluemont or other trails, but a virtual mile race can be done almost anywhere – and perhaps with all the traffic on the trails, your neighborhood streets would be safer – at least coronavirus-wise.

May 21, 2020 – NO TMBC – ON YOUR OWN: One Mile Virtual Race – but then you can throw in some jogging and Tempo if that is not enough.

If you've been doing the workouts this spring, or some variation, you should be able to handle a one-mile race. It is very important to focus on your form, getting up on your tows and lifting your knees. Leave a little bit for an all out sprint the last 200 to 400 meters to finish Strong!

And now the Coach Rich News!

Greetings all. The #dcrrc1milechallenge is on. Get out there and participate. 5:23 is the fastest so far but we have barely gotten started. dcroadrunners.org for current standings and photos.

The Broken Ladder Challenge Ladder is still in progress on day 31 with 2 men left fighting it out and about to start day 31. Just crazy. The ladies podium is complete and Liz Ozeki took the # 3 slot. Just phenomenal completing 25 days. On the 26th she had to get up at 3AM to head in for a 12+ shift at the hospital and decided discretion was the better part of valor and running a marathon after that and before midnight made no sense. Huge congrats to Liz! Her twin sister Thia was 1st OAF completing 27 days. I know you will get her at the next crazy challenge Liz!!! Plus, you of course still have marathon PR bragging right :)

Congrats to Ze Dagher for running a 5k on the track 2 weeks ago in a real nice 17:47!

Stay safe and happy running!

Coach Big Guy and Coach Rich will be out doing the Virtual One Mile Race at Some Point in the Next few days!
