Wednesday 3/14 – Π Day Run
March 14th (3/14) is Pi Day – so we should probably run 3.14 miles. But instead we’re going 4.4 miles as we run Route #11: Churches. This route takes us by some beautiful architecture, so now that we have some more light for our runs (yay!) be sure to slow down to take a look – especially Tulip Street Methodist church at 6th and Russell. Also, this is a figure 8 loop, so beginners could cut this run short.
6p.m. Wednesday at the corner of 11th and Holly.
Join the East Nasty NCAA bracket challenge. $1. Winner take all, last place gets their money back. Play in games don’t count. First round picks get 1 point, then each round the points double. We understand that the play in games won’t be finished by tomorrow night, but I don’t think any of those teams are getting past the first round anywhere… So fill out a bracket, and give it and $1 to Drew Jones on Wednesday night.
Thursday Night Workout
Last Thursday, 5 souls braved the rain to do hill repeats. To those people – you are champions. This week we are going back to tempo running. We meet at 11th and Holly at 6 p.m.
Advanced – 35 minutes tempo running. 85% max heart rate. 45 seconds per mile slower than 5k pace.
Intermediate – 25 minutes tempo. 85% max heart rate. 40 seconds per mile slower than 5k pace.
Novice – 20 minutes tempo. 90% max heart rate. 25-30 seconds per mile slower than 5k pace.
See you Wednesday!
