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..

Today’s Workout – Sticky

I wanted to wait to see what the day’s weather forecast would be and Weather Underground’s Sleepy Hollow forecast for today at 6PM is 88 degrees with 42% humidity ?. I’d like to do hills where the course is mostly shady and cut it back to 4 x 100 seconds, 4 x 50 seconds & 3 x 25 seconds. I would also recommend to those of you running the club team championships to run them (if at all) at a greatly reduced effort & just fine tune your form.

Hill Repeats:
The workout is 4 x 100, 4 x 50 and 3 x 25 seconds
up the hill
towards the barns and starts from our meeting point. The recovery is the
jog back to the start. This is a great workout for those new to
the speed workouts as we all get back to the start about the same time
as the faster runners will have a longer recovery run back to the start.
