Four of us got “Track Tuesday” started at 7:30, doing the “Art Morris” 3 x 800m-pre-mile workout with solid splits by Ken, Mark, and Will. A good PM turnout of 30+ runners (despite the holiday week) including some of the Lititz contingent – Tommy and Tom. Most impressive visually – the 300s by Anthony and Jonathan. A track “pass” is given for those who raced Monday at the Ephrata Firecracker 5-miler (Times in LNP on Tuesday). FMTC had 6/10 top men including a podium spot by Nate Alter (25:41) and 60-69 AG wins by Mimi Newcomer and Glenn Mohler. Thanks to Adam and Ben who were not afraid to add their names to the Elite field of our mile race for next week. Only 15/30 PBRs consumed (time to phase out?) and as always thanks to Jason for the water!
If you are interested, there will be a 2nd workout this Friday at 7:30 AM at the F and M Track:
8 x 400m with 1:40 RI – this is the 2nd pre-mile workout before next week’s race.
