I understand more than a dozen shipmates showed up for Tuesday’s workout on Pearl Harbor Day despite the 20 plus that were in or had just completed CIM…way to bring ’em in, Doug!
The Workout – 1200s and 800s
Austin Marathoners/Fast Group = 2×1200 and 4×800
Fun Group = 2×1200 and 2×800
News – there will be a hill workout Thursday (5 mile tempo). There will be a long run on Saturday departing the zero at 7:00:00 am. Austin Marathoners have a 20 miler on the schedule and will start at 5:15:00 am with this 10 mile portion of the new Austin Marathon course (south). They’ll return to the zero by 7:00:00 am to join the fast group for this 10 mile portion of the new Austin Marathon course (more north and sharing approximately 6 miles of the new course). The fun group can start at 7:00:00 am and cut off at Windsor (which becomes 24th) and then catch Rio Grande back for closer to 6 miles total. CIMTG will be consumed by JMTG and, being in severe recovery mode, should do no more than 10 miles of any of the aforementioned routes at any of the aforementioned start times. Breakfast is at Taquerias Arandas (2448 S 1st St.) in two shifts (7:10:01 am and 9:10:02 am).
More News – I knocked Bruce’s book (Sour Lake; Or, The Beast) out in less than 48 hours. It’s a great read and ridiculously underpriced on amazon.com. Bruce has long held the award for the most epic race report ever written (often being accused of writing it first and then going out to run a race to match it) and the book is even better!
Yet More News Still – VOLUNTEER FOR DECKER (if you’re not running it)! We still need a few volunteers to make the ship water stop rock. The race is Sunday morning. Email Al @ firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know you’ll be there.
Run every chance you get!
