August 14 Workout and Social Events


Rather than give a Cassandra-like forecast for conditions for this Wednesday's workout, I'll simply say that whatever the conditions, the proposed workout of 400M repeats with a full 400M recovery will work well. These repeats are designed for speed - faster than 5K pace, although you might want to start the first one at 5K pace and work down. Depending on your level of effort, number of repeats can be between 8 and 12.

Also, advance notice that all are invited to post-race refreshments this week! First Down on Fairfax Drive is a good close spot. Please join if you can!

Finally, as annouced at last week's workout, we will have an end-of-summer and post-20 miler gathering on Saturday August 31 at the Quarterdeck on Fort Myer Drive in Rosslyn. Let's plan to gather at 5:30. Please let me know if you would like to attend so that we can give the restaurant a heads-up. 

See you at the track!
