second wind events 7/10-7/17Submitted by magdalena.caspe... on Mon, 2017-07-10 16:44
Coming soon to a fun run near you! There will be a shoe rep from Hoka at the run on July 18 and a rep from Brooks with the new Glycerin15 on the 25nd.
Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana (at the intersection of Windsor and Vine - there is a parking lot and you can park on both sides of Vine as you approach the park). We will start out with a timed-ish mile running west and then south, followed by one or more two mile loops continuing in the same direction. Not sure you're up for a fast mile? The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome. Both these groups go in the opposite direction, so no matter your speed you'll see other club members! Post Run: Fiesta Cafe in Champaign! Don't plan to run? Come out at 7:30.
Got an idea where we should go? Or feedback (good OR bad) about a place we went? Email me!
Speedwork: Wednesday at 6pm. This week, we will meet at the track at Centennial High School in Champaign. Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend and speedwork will alternate between meeting at Centennial and at Orchard Downs.
Summer marathon training: Saturday at 7am. This week we meet at 4th and Pennsylvania at the Law Lot for 12 miles. Even if you're not planning on running a fall marathon, there's a group run distance for you since all routes have an easy way to make a 3-5 mile run. Unlike our Spring training program, these runs are open to all club members. Check out the schedule here - routes are not final for all weeks, but starting location and distance options are listed. Valeria will be the coordinator and the course is the half marathon course run in reverse. Here is this week's route (turns will be marked with chalk so you won't get lost): http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=590435
Summer weather and water reminder:
The club brings a cooler of water to the Tuesday night and Saturday morning group runs, but no cups - bring your own bottle. Water is not provided at speedwork. In the event of severe weather/electrical storms, use caution and common sense when going on a run. Decisions to cancel fun runs and speedwork due to weather will be made in as timely a matter as possible.
