Thursday Tempo - Meet at Tortoise and Hare statue along Broadway across from Gleesons - Warm-up starts promptly at 7:00 with 1 full loop - Format considers rest and tuning for Front Runners Pride Run club points race Saturday - One full loop of about 5 stride-outs - Followed by 20 minutes of tempo pace, in the way of 10 minutes counter-clockwise then turn around for a 10 minute trip back to the start (no break) - Racers for Sat should consider stopping after strides - (stride-out is a gradual increase in speed until you reach your fast speed, then back off and recover, tempo pace is approximately the pace in which you'd be able to talk, but not easily) - As usual, carrot cake awarded to most consistent runner - See you there!

Thursday workout - Final hills - Meet at Fieldston School at top of Manhattan College Parkway at 7:00 - One loop of Fieldston hills followed by 4-5 long hill repeats for final strengthening before tempo paced training returns to the Flats next Thursday - Same schedule as last year - Matt will be there to manage, and he'll bring our new timing system to practice using it by timing the loop and repeats. Have a great workout!
