5 and 7…

LP Field

Run #9 takes us down and around LP field.  It’s 4.43 miles and incorporates most of the two mile add on loop.   (If you’re not feelin’ it, you can shorten this run to about 3.7 miles…)  But there are two important East Nasty dates coming up…

December 13: Country Music 1/2 Marathon Training

Every year, the East Nasties train for the 1/2 marathon together.   We run on Wednesdays and Sundays, starting on January 3.    If you are interested, please attend the information meeting/run/breakfast.

Informational Meeting. This Sunday, December 13, 9:00 a.m.  Come prepared to go for a 4-5 mile run.  After the run we’ll have some breakfast and talk through the details of the training program.   9:00 a.m. at my house: 314 S. 17th street.

Sundays: In January, all our long runs will start at 9:00 a.m. until we start doing the longer long runs, when we move to 8:00.  The majority of the runs will be from Shelby Park, but we will change locations as the training progresses. (The locations are listed on the Sunday Runs page.)

Thursdays: Chuck Hargrove has graciously offered to lead beginner/intermediate runners through the suggested workouts on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in Shelby Park.  Thanks Chuck!

December 16: East Nasty Christmas Party

Next Wednesday, Stacy Andrick (603 N. 16th Street) will host all the Nasties for our 2nd annual Christmas Party.  Everyone is welcome and here’s the plan:

December 16, we will meet and run as usual.  Afterwards, we will head over to Stacy’s house.  If Heidi Huerta does not talk to you about bringing an appetizer (you know who you are), you need to bring a dessert and/or some beer and wine.  Hope to see you there!

    Hey — I’d like to get some more info about the Thursday night training. Where should we meet in Shelby? What’s the training like? I won;t be able to attend the brunch Sunday, but thanks to everyone for organizing the training this year!

  2. Chuck says:

    Thursday night workout will be designed as a speed or tempo style workout, meaning run will be shorter and a little faster than weekend and Wednesday distance runs. I urge you to work on weekly base mileage and flexibility now, today, immediately so you will be ready for speed by early January.

    You can follow workouts on blog, and by going to Facebook pages for East Nasty Running Club and East Nasty Country Music Half-Marathon Training.

    Shelby Park workouts will start at parking lot under railroad trestle near Shelby Bottoms nature center.
