A new Run Group at The Creek

When: 6/19/17

QIC: Ha-ha

PAX (): Clyde, Swiper, Hero and Ha-ha

The AlphaMen are always looking to improve.  Mostly that involves a boot camp workout. Some times though you need to improve your endurance.  The run is the thing so a new run group was discussed and quickly organized at Big Creek. 4 HIMs answered the bell this morning and met up at the skate park parking lot to access the Greenway trail for an out and back.

We discussed training for distance running how YHC believes in the 80/20 rule for training.  80% easy pace (“conversational” pace) and 20% speed work and hills.  Since we all regularly post at a boot camp workout we get the 20% “hard” work.  We will mostly work on the 80%.

Also, since this is an out and back route we can have different abilities and all end up back at the parking lot at the same time.  We just go out 30 mins and turn around.

So 4 PAX left in the gloom for points north and returned to the parking lot together for count-o-rama and BOM.

TClaps to the men who showed up this morning on less than 24 hours notice.  It is great to have the company of other men on the trail. Now if we can find a name for this puppy…

TClaps to Hero for the extra laps around the parking lot waiting for the rest of the PAX to arrive from the 6 mile loop.

Get to be out with men running this morning.  Join us next week at Fowler skate park parking lot at 5:30 am on Monday.
