5 mi Today, 7/11 and it's time for track. I came early enough to run a warmup on Alton Rd plus visit a porta potty in the neighborhood-to-be near the rec center. Lisa Cox joined this run, her first ever track session. Since we don't have many people doing our late start for summer hours, … Continue reading Twelve Quarters
5mi. Today was the first morning of the new "summer hours" at Benjamin Track. Security will open the school gates at 6:30 am. I imagine this will inconvenience a few that have a work schedule beginning in the early mornings. Some runners cane at the regular time and did a workout on Grandiflora Ave. They … Continue reading A delayed start

The weather was great, barely a breeze and 55 degrees. We ran east and in less than … Continue reading Stuart’s hills
5 mi. Even in recovery mode it was refreshing to have the second cool track workout in a row. Many of my intervals had me as the very last runner in the group, which was expected. Sometimes, my recovery jog was the same speed as the interval! 1 mile warmup on Alton Rd 300m w/100m … Continue reading A good cool morning for a change!
I arrived late and that meant I was the last person finishing the cooldown. And, the first 200m interval was rolling when I got to the track. I hopped on the back of that interval and ran the rest not as a leader, but 4th or 5th in the lineup of folks happy to run … Continue reading Plenty of sprints
