A great end to June for Tuesday track practice – including a perfect 60* for those who got out early. First Kudos go to Evan Kleinhaus who checked in Monday PM from Las Vegas, NV where he did the 12 x 400m workout at a temperature of 103*F. Will and Mimi kept the A.M. workout group going along with the newest FMTC member Mark Seigford. Others labored at their closest HS track. I stopped by briefly in the P.M. for quick perusal and attendance count – and hopefully did not miss too many of our runners. Nick & Tom were doing a “spicy” 8-mile tempo, Scott was pushing yet again with a long-hard workout and closing with a 28.8 for his last 200m. Elsewhere on the track, Mark Oles was lamenting about “the pain and truth” of the evening while chasing Jay. Bennett was completing a modest 5 x 1K as part of his XC build up – while Brian and Adam took on and hammered a 4 x (800400/200) workout. Dan said he was a late arrival and brought the new blue tooth music toy to try out… not sure what the first song was except NOT Dave Matthews. Assume Jay and Denise had the PBRs and Jason the water. If you are not part of the FMTC STRAVA GROUP and would like to be – Sam Dever and Sarah Delia are now the administrators so, please check with them to get access.
