Workouts

Saturday Long Run

There is an organized run every Saturday morning at the Pump House starting at 7:30. Paces and distances (up to 20 miles) vary widely and there are usually enough people running to find someone or a group to run with. Water and gatorade are put out by one of the runners every week. Coming for the first time? It’ll be great! We start here:

 

Runners put out the water and gatorade. In other words, if we don’t put it out it doesn’t get put out and then we are all thirsty and annoyed!! Fortunately, we have the WATER BARON who coordinates the Saturday fluids. What’s most important is that you sign up to put out the water, or you will feel the wrath of the Baron.

There are two places we have water and gatorade (click the link for directions):

The Mailboxes: This is 3.3 miles from the start

The Triangle: This is 2.2 miles on Quaker Ridge Rd from stop 1.


Wednesday Speed Workout

Coach Jack Brennan runs a workout at Rockefeller Preserve every Wednesday — each week it’s a different workout with particular objectives and challenges; contact Jack via email to find out what’s going on right now. Jack sends out a weekly email, which is great to have if you’re going to the workout, but also useful if you’re missing it. You can emulate the workout on your own and not feel sad that you missed an awesome run.

The workout starts at 5:30pm, and usually begins here..

Masters Challenge Race

Since most of our speed workout participants are over 40, I’m encouraging those runners to run in the Master’s Challenge 5K . For directions go to www.runner.org and it’s right there . This is a fun event and this year is being held at Rockland Lake on a flat course. Those under 40 can also go and root on their elders {:-) and even participate in the post race festivities. You could run the course in reverse as a tempo run and cheer the racers on somewhere around the 1 1/2 mile area.

If there is enough interest I could have a workout at Rocky’s, just let me know.

I’d like to have a track speed workout at Sleepy Hollow HS track on 8/2/17 as the following week. I will check on the availability.
