GRANDMA'S MARATHON RESULTS

CONGRATULATIONS to DREA and TIM STRAND!! Drea ran 2:53 and Tim ran 2:44 on a hot day with 20mph headwinds! These are truly great performances and show Tim is more than capable of sub 2:40 and Drea an olympic Trials Qualifier sub 2:47...the key now however is to concentrate on improving biomechanics and getting away from the marathon for a while and improve speed at 5k and 10k distances. Far too often we tend to get stuck in the marathon after marathon cycle and then wonder why we run the same times and then get slower and injured. (hint hint :)
I mention this in this context as it's a lesson to all no matter what level runner you are.

TUESDAY 6/15/10 6AM WORKOUT

Hi All, although you all know your pace/ability groups and are free to split into them, this workout is such that you could conceivably start together and split naturally as the workout progresses. Don't slack because the old coach isn't there:)!
GOOD LUCK!


3mile w/up,
Mockingbird Lane hills (start Mockingbird and Puente, hard effort to the gate by More Mesa, jog down X 3....after 3rd one run hard from gate to start, jog back UP to gate repeat x3...then two sets (3 up, 3down, 3 up, 3down))
3mi cool down

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GEORGE WILLIAMS!

George ran a 50k trail race last Saturday for his 51st birthday! (Poor guy couldn't quite make the last K....now that's effort!). Happy 51st B-Day George!

Saturday 6/12/10 Practice WESTMONT COLLEGE

Hi All, We are meeting at the Westmont track tomorrow at 6:30am.
Vicky's 3k (7 1/2 laps around the track :)) is being held here and first heat starts at 8:30am. We encourage you to run it as it's a great benefit over a rarely held, fun distance.....but if you choose not to, we'll see you at 6:30am. BTW, the race will be easier than the workout :)
