2018 Running Program – Workout #14 – 8/8/18

Hi Gang,

Looks like the 3rd week in a row of oppressive heat. It’s starting to put a little crimp in our style as the weather is limiting our options. Regardless, here’s the tentative plan:

Warm-up (~6:00PM) – We’ll break into groups according to current fitness level and do 15-20 mins of easy jogging…or jogging mixed with walking. This should be relaxed.

Note: If you get antsy and want to do your warm-up early…as many have been doing lately…try to time it so you are ready to run at ~6:20PM. In other words, if you are back before then, you’ll need to keep moving so you don’t stiffen up.

Track workout (~6:20PM) – Pick-ups of 6 x 2:30 with recovery of 2:30.  Run pick-ups at a repeatable pace. If you are one of the rare folks who is unaffected by the heat, you can try 3 min pick-ups with 2 min recoveries.

Cool-down – 5-20+ mins of easy jogging or walk/jogging…or walking.  Much like warm-up but doesn’t need to be as long in duration.

Note: All participants will be guided to the appropriate group for both warm-up and track.

Guests and drop-ins welcome…

See you there…

Coach Paul
