Our morning group of 5 runners got Track Tuesday started with a solid group effort in completing the 10 x 500m workout (average age 65.2 years, average pace ~6:40). Yes, we are getting older but still working hard and despite her 11-day layoff – strong running by Mimi on the track. Some warm rain and wind greeted the PM runners. Glad to see many did the 10-minute on/off workout I posted which is harder than it looks if you want to hold pace. Scott Roth was running 200s and kicking so hard that remnants of the F&M track were found on his back. Leah is trying to figure out if rest days help you race better – I think they do. Duncan, who wants to become an ultra runner was showing his McCaskey/Dickinson speed hitting 68s for his last 400!  And as is not infrequently the case – Bill Fife was late to the track but was getting the workout done solo while most of our cars were leaving the parking lot with the evening coming to a close. 

Chris was having an existential crisis during his run and hopefully is better today. Which Myers brother is the faster miler ?? – 1500 times don’t count. THANKS Jay for the PBRs and Jason for the water duty. And thanks Brian for the four Tree House IPAs – #1 was enjoyed last night and they are as good as reported.
