It was cold.

We ran 8 Yasso 800s.

There will NOT be a hill workout on Thanksgiving Thursday!

There will be a long run on Saturday.  Austin Marathon Group is scheduled for 20 following this route:  DWRMTG will do likewise.  If you’d like to do less you can go out half the distance you’d like to run, turn around, and head back.

Breakfast at Dario’s whenever you get there.

Way to coach, Al!!

Temp = 52 degrees, wind = 0 mph

Fartleks – fast segments in minutes of 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 2.5, 2.0, 1.5, 1.0      

1 minute slow segments in-between each fast segment

Sure was easier running these at 52 degrees vs 106 degrees

No one stayed to run the timed mile!!!

Run every chance you get!!!
