Talladega Nights was a pretty funny movie.  Especially the part where the French driver is trying to explain to Ricky Bobby his racing pedigree.  The way he pronounced Formula One as “Farm-you-la Un” should be the theme for Austin today and the next several days.  Farm-you-la Un.

The Workout – 4.84 mile tempo

News – there will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am on Saturday.  It is unclear how Farm-you-la Un will impact the parking or commute to the zero but it’s probably a good idea to allow some extra time to get down there.  We’re off the trail this week for 9 miles or 17 miles.  There will be coolers out every few miles.  Breakfast at Cafe Express (3418 N Lamar) whenever you get there.

News – there will be a hill workout on Thursday (5 mile tempo).  Be sure to check out the map…it’s different than the usual 5 mile tempo route!  There will be a cooler at the turn around of this out and back course (which happens to be at Pleasant Run Place).  There will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am on Saturday.  It is unclear how Formula 1 will impact the parking or commute to the zero but it’s probably a good idea to allow some extra time to get down there.  We’re off the trail this week for 9 miles or 17 miles.  There will be coolers out every few miles.  Breakfast at Cafe Express (3418 N Lamar) whenever you get there.

The Daisy 5k is SUNDAY!  Run or volunteer…but support the organization (ARC) that supports the group!!

The Workout – 5 mile tempo

News – there will be a long run departing the zero on Saturday at 7:00:00 am.  On the trail (kinda) this week for 15 or 9 miles.  Marathoners will do the Barton Hills Lollipop plus the 10 mile loop.  Half Marathoners will do the Barton Hills Lollipop plus the 4 mile loop.  Stay on Barton Hills without turning left on Wilke (there is a lot of contstruction going on there so the gatorade will be on Barton Hills by the school)!  Also, if you’re unfamiliar with how to run different distances on the trail you can familiarize yourself with this map.  Breakfast at La Feria (2010 S Lamar) at 9:30:01 am.

Run every chance you get!

Sunday, November 4th, at 2:00 am we will be moving our clocks back one hour.  The net effect of this movement is a reduction in the amount of daylight for our evening workouts.  It will be fairly dark when the workouts start and REALLY dark when they end.  Please acquire a blinking light and wear bright, reflective clothing. This is important on Tuesdays but very important on Thursdays.  Way to coach, Al!

The Workout – 2 mile tempo (two laps)

News – there will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am on Saturday.  Off the trail this week for 13 miles or 10 miles.  The Fun Fun Fun Fest is blocking the parking parking parking lot at Auditorium Shores so give yourself some extra time to park.  Don’t worry if you’re running a little late, we’ll wait for you until 7:00:00 am.  Breakfast at Maria’s Taco Express (2529 S Lamar) at 9:20:00 am.

More News – the Daisy 5k is November 11th (not this weekend but next).  Support ARC, run Daisy!  If you’re not planning on running Daisy, please plan on volunteering.
