The runs start at 6:00PM SHARP.
WHAT: We will be offering a Tuesday night trail workout. This will be designed to help runners become more comfortable pushing hard and learning what it takes to raise your effort while on the trails. We will always start with a 1 mile group warm up.
Workouts will be the following.
- Hill repeats–After about a mile warm up jog, we will show you the hill for repeats. You can run it at whatever pace is comfortable for you. We have people who run hard but we also have people who might choose to hike up the hill, so all paces are welcome.
- Repeats–After about a mile warm up jog, we will show you the section of trail we’ll be using for repeats (usually 1/2 mile loops). Repeats are supposed to be consistent hard efforts (go as hard as you can, but try to keep your pace steady throughout the whole interval). For a calculator that will give you a rough idea of how fast you should run, you can use this calculator (you’ll want to look at the yasso 800 number at the bottom). After each interval you run, you will walk/jog the same amount of time you just ran hard to prepare your body for the next hard interval.
Bring a cold beverage or snack to share/enjoy after.
WHEN: Every Tuesday at 6pm – Year round – Bring a headlamp if it’s past October 8th
WHERE: We rotate trail systems – please check the schedule below
**PLEASE NOTE: Headlamps are required for all runs for the winter!!! If you are looking for some good options, contact #TrailsRoc and we can recommend some for you! 🙂
**HEADLAMPS ARE GOING TO BE NEEDED STARTING IN OCTOBER! PLEASE BRING ONE WITH YOU FOR THE GROUP RUNS, AS IT GETS DARK QUICKLY IN THE WOODS!
December 11–Durand Hill Repeats–Meet in the lot on Lakeshore Blvd, across from Log Cabin Road. We’ll do a short warm up together, then run hill repeats for about 30-40 minutes, then head back to cars together.
December 18–Durand Repeat Loops and our Annual Cookie Party–Meet at Sunset Shelter, which is off Kings Highway. We will run the MFAMTL course–it’s a one mile loop that is mostly flat. We’ll do one loop together, then anyone who wants to go on their own can, and anyone who wants to run as a group can do that as well. After we run, bring a change of warm clothes and cookies/snacks to pass and a drink for yourself. We’ll hang out, hopefully be able to make a fire and just hang out together to celebrate the holidays. This community is amazing–come be a part of it!
December 25–Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! No group run tonight–We hope you all have plans to enjoy time with family and friends! See you in the new year!
