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.
