Thursday workout - Cancelled due to snow-filled roads that don't leave a comfortable margin for safety from traffic.

Thursday Workout - Meet at Fieldston School - follow Manhattan College Parkway from Broadway (near Burger King) - Start at 7:00 sharp - 2 x 2 mile loops for 1st runner, almost for some, and not quite for others, followed by short hill repeats for all. Loop format is same as two weeks ago, where lead runner reverses when back at the start, and others reverse at the moment they see the runners ahead have reversed. Return to start. Gather and jog down to Waldo Ave for short hill repeats. 8x or until your time can't be maintained, whichever comes first. Coach Glen will be there to help announce times. Please wear reflective clothing and remember to bring headlamps. See you there!

Thursday Tempo Workout - Meet at Fieldston School - follow Manhattan College Parkway from Broadway (near Burger King) - Start at 7:00 sharp - "Polar Bear Pied Piper workout" - Two 2-mile loops for lead runner, almost 2 loops for all others. Plus 2 medium hill repeats. Format is: lead runner reverses when back at start, runs course opposite direction and collects other runners that will also reverse and now follow back to start. Gather at start and jog down hill to Waldo Ave hill for 2 medium or short hill repeats. At the last footstep, mad scramble to subway, bus, car, home or whatever will get us to warmth. Remember to bring headlamps. See you there!

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!!
