Bill: "Maybe we should try running some relays." Kim: "Really?" Bill: "No Relay!" Kim: Rolls eyes again.... This is pretty much the basic idea with every one of our conversations....anyway we are reeeally going to do some relay running for this week's "Speed" workout. We will actually do a variety of different relays to be named later. Should be fun and different (also words Kim frequently uses to describe me. :-) Meet at 6pm on Wednesday at SHG track. Hope to see you t
Speed Wednesday night at the SHG track. The workout will concentrate on increasing speed during a run. The intervals will be 800/400/800/400/800. Every 400 meters the goal is to increase speed by 3-5 seconds. (ie Your slowest 400 will be the first 400 of the first interval and your fastest will be the second 400 of the last interval). The pace will seem easy at first and very hard at the end. Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

This week Bill and Kim are not available for the speed workout but worry not! We have "Step Coaches" willing and able to lead the workout. Sam Woods and Venu Shetty will be in charge. The plan for this week is to run a ladder. The distances will be 200-400-600-800-1200. This totals 3200 meters or 2 miles. The guys will lead you through our warm-up routine. Then break into groups to work together. The meeting time is Wednesday at 6 p.m. and the location is the SHG Track

As I pondered the thought of the run for this week, I thought running two things just might be a treat. Speed can be fun if done very quick, and two things done quickly just might be the trick. But the day of the speed that we run for this week, is a day before more for many I think. Because of the fact many people running in races on the 4th, I plan to let people do what fits their schedules. If you are racing you may want to keep it on the light side and do a few shorte
