We're switching things up a bit on the first Thursday of every month. Why? Why not. And because it's incorporating TRACK workouts into our weekly open runs, which will make everyone faster and hopefully add a little something extra to your training schedule.
Here's the deal
Our HQ at Under Armour is only 1.5 miles from East River Park Track, which makes for a great warm-up distance. (We'd end up doing close to this ON the track if we were to simply start the workout there.) So we'll still meet at 583 Broadway between Houston & Prince at 6:30pm, leaving to run / start our warm-up journey to the track at 7pm. (Bags, valuables, etc. will be left at UA.)
Once we arrive at ERPT, we'll do a couple quick activations to finish warming up and jump right into the workout. Workouts will vary depending on upcoming races, training, or just whatever we're trying to accomplish. After finishing the workout, we'll run as a group back to the store. The total distance of Thursday Track Night workouts will vary, but expect it to be anywhere between 6-8 miles in total, including warm-up & cool-down.
What if you don't have experience with track workouts?
ALL GOOD. We're here to answer any questions you might have and scream at you to push it along the way. (If you REALLY don't have any experience with tracks, they're giant circles, which means you can't get away from us or our encouragement.) So experienced or not, join us.
