Thursday Tempo Workout - Tortoise and Hare - Easy warm-up lap starts promptly at 7:00 PM, followed by tempo at about 7:15. Considering next Thursday's workout will be easy (if anything) with Ted Corbitt 15K days later, and to prep for that race, this workout will be a repeat of the "Roxanne Special" of 2 weeks ago. Just 1 minute of rest among 44 minutes total potential. Two sets of 22 minutes with 1 minute rest between sets. Format is 11 minutes out, reverse, 11 minutes back to start. When back at start, rest 1 minute. Repeat (optional). Practice a smart pace. Remember to bring headlamps. See you there!

Thursday Tempo Workout - Whatever couch you might sink into this afternoon - Easy warm-up lap starts with chips and dips as soon as you arrive (sharp). Main workout will last 440 minutes potential of steady continuous paced eating, comprised as follows: 110 minutes of mashed potatoes, at which point you return with 110 minutes of stuffing, take 2 minutes break to loosen belt and wash down food with some wine, then repeat again 110 minutes but with squash, then head for the finish with 110 minutes of turkey. Cool down lap with some Lloyds carrot cake, of course. This is a flexible workout, feel free to substitute the foods. Please remember to wear loose comfortable clothing and bring your appetite. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Tempo workout Thursday - starts promptly at 7:00. "Catch Me If You Can" format. 3 full loops of the flats. Staggered starts according to pace; slower paced start first at about 7:00, fastest start last about 7:15. Run at half-marathon pace. See you there!

Reminder - Tempo workout at the flats returns tonight! Warm-up lap starts promptly at 7:00 and tempo starts at 7:15 promptly. Workout includes out-back format like last year. Out 8 mins, 1 min rest, turn around then 8:00 back to start where we all meet again. 1 minute rest and repeat. Total tempo pace of 32 mins. "Huff puff word word" pace. Not a race. Developing sense of pace is key. Carrot cake muffin awarded to most consistent runner. See you there!
