Get back up to SPEED!


I am so impressed with all of the running that people have been doing despite the shelter in place for COVID-19. Many of you ran the Lincoln Half course or something similar and others have run marathons and other great workouts. So, let's get back up to Speed!


The way that I'd like to orchestrate these workouts is at the beginning of every week I will post a general plan for a workout that you can do on your own and then people can post (if they'd like) their results. We all love our big groups that we have run with in the past, but please do these workouts on your own.


For the first week I'd like to have our workout be a mile for time. This will give you a benchmark so you can assess your fitness level and track improvement. You can run the mile wherever you'd like. Last year we ran it from the 1.25 mark of the Women's Distance Festival (north side of Park near MacArthur) to the .25 mark (half way up the hill from the bottom pond to the pavilion). Both marks have a line across the road. You can also run on the track (4 laps).


DAD JOKE ALERT!!


Interviewer: How do you explain this 4 year gap on your resume?

Me: That's when I went to Yale.

Interviewer: That very impressive! You're hired.

Me: Thanks, I really need this Yob.
