Summer is just about over. Teachers start back to school this week. Everyone else starts next week. You may even have some college students who have started back.
I know some people hit the restart on New Year’s, but I really think now is the time to get back into it. It’s a good time to get back into the rhythm of training. You can really get back into good habits. Get up, run, go to work, repeat.
I’d recommend picking a target race and getting after it with your training.
Here is this week’s workout schedule:
Run the Loop crew-Tuesday-3 x 2400 w/400 JR at 10k pace. Friday-4 miles of tempo-1st mile on the track, then out to Fern Hill and then last part on the track. Saturday-11 miles. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring a gu or two and some water to the workout.
Everyone else-Tuesday-1200, 400 x 3 w/200 jr after the 1200 and a 400 JR after the 400. 5k pace for the 1200 and 2 mile pace for the 400. Friday-2400 of tempo and then 6 x 300 w/300 jr. Quick. Long run 8-10 miles.
See you in the morning.
