Workouts

Tuesday Night Speed Workout

Each Tuesday night at 7pm we meet for our club track workout. See Location “A” below. Check our calendar each Tuesday for regular updates in case of seasonal changes and or bad weather updates.

During the months of January and Feburary (and maybe March, depending on snow coverage…) we meet in the parking lot of the Fieldston High School on Manhattan College Parkway for a hill workout.

We meet here in the warmer months:

Thursday Night Tempo

Thursday Nights we meet at 7pm the ‘Tortoise and Hare’ statue on Broadway – the finish line of many cross country races. During the winter months when there’s frequently snow in the park, we meet at the Fieldston High School parking lot, same as Tuesday nights.

Tempo runs are a key ingredient for improving race times and are run at a pace that you could run a 10 mile race – at least in theory! This is also described as a pace at which you could hold a conversation but only with short sentences. Runs vary in style to take account of the abilities of whoever turns up. Runs may include 3 laps of the ‘Flats’ (1.5 miles each lap), or may go up to Tibbetts Brook Park along the Putnam Trail, using the wooded trail section to keep together and warm up and own before and after. The total effort distance is usually about 4-5 miles.

 

Saturday Morning Group Run

Good Morning! Come and join us for our regular morning group runs each Saturday morning at 8AM!
We break into various groups based on different paces and distances, starting with a loop of the Parade Grounds, then some peel off through the trails for various length and speed runs in smaller groups.
Be sure to meet back up after the run at the Short Stop Cafe across the street for breakfast!
