Tempo on Monday

I've been doing tempo runs on Mondays for a few weeks now--when my racing and traveling allow for it-- and am tired of pushing myself along those long, boring stretches alone. Anyone up for joining me? I know it's not a tempo for some of you speedy guys out there, but I could still use the help if you are feeling particularly chivalrous!

WHAT: 10 minute warm-up; 45 minutes-- starting about 6:20 pace and working down close to or under 6:00; 10 minute cool down.
WHEN: Monday (8/27)
WHERE: C&O Canal (I'm jogging over the Key Bridge from the Gold's Gym in Rosslyn)
TIME: Meet across from the store (by the Key Bridge) at ~ 5:00. I know this is early-- I'm on recess hours here on the Hill. If someone needs to meet later, I can accomodate with enough of a heads up.

Let me know (rungiraffe@gmail.com) if you are interested.

Thanks!

I wish I could, but Monday is the first day of school and I have class on Monday nights this semester. Boo. Good luck!

hey laura, how is dave doing? is his IT band getting better?

Jason said...

In all seriousness, this would be a good run for me- can we do it earlier say around noon?

Yes, giraffes are fast!

I'm afraid that I work until 4:00. That's why I am running at about 5:00. Noon! That sounds like torture in the DC summers! Please e-mail me if you can come (I don't get a chance to check the blog much during the work day.)

Thanks!

Hey! I think there was a conspiracy in that You Tube video. The giraffe was sabotaged! Someone must have thrown some of its favorite leaves on the infield and it was distracted! ;-)
