Thursday Tempo - Meet at Tortoise and Hare statue along Broadway across from Gleesons - Warm-up starts promptly at 7:00 with 1 full loop of the flats - Workout starts at 7:15- Format is 8 minutes out then 8 minutes back with 1 minute break between, then 1 minute rest at start. Follow with a solid 20 minutes in the form of 10 minutes out and 10 minutes back with no rest. Total of either 16 or 36 minutes. Designed to allow our Percy Sutton Harlem 5K racers on Saturday an option of a lighter workout, but also helps those in longer training programs. See you there!

Thursday Tempo - Meet at Tortoise and Hare statue along Broadway across from Gleesons - Warm-up starts promptly at 7:00 with 1 full loop - Potential of 40 minutes of tempo pace, comprised of two reps of 20 minutes, in the way of 10 minutes counter-clockwise then turn around (no break) for a 10 minute trip back to the start, followed by 2 minutes rest, then repeat (optional). Tough workout, but will help prepare us for Team Champs in 10 days. Tempo pace is approximately the pace at which you'd be able to talk, but not easily - As usual, carrot cake awarded to most consistent runner - See you there!
