WednesdayNight Track Update for May 2019

Members & Guests:

May, as we know, is high school tournament time, so our access to the track will be known on a week-to-week basis. (Although it seems certain we WILL have the track on May 15). So, I will post here workouts for the first three weeks, and update later.

May 1: No track. We will do 1000M "around the block" repeats. Pace: 10K or Tempo. Recovery: return to start line. Suggestion for Thursday morning: 1000M repeats @ 10K-10M pace. 200M recovery. Aim for 5-6 repeats each workout.

May 8: Track availability not clear. Workout: Mile repeats on Trail or Track. 10K pace. 400M recovery (or timed equivalent). Aim for 3-4 repeats.

May 15: 4 x 5:00 at 5K pace, 5:00 recovery. A repeat from April for those who missed out!

Thanks for your continued commitment to the workouts despite the limited track availabilty. June looks entirely clear!
