Time trial review and 7/6 workout

Thanks to everyone who participated in the All American Time Trial on Saturday. I thought it was an unqualified success, and it certainly proved to me that we can do this again in the future when it's appropriate and get good results. It's a lot cheaper than sending everyone to a road race, and we know for sure the course is flat and accurate, so we should keep this arrow in our quiver for use as needed. Mazel tov to Jason Myers on a huge PR of 15:43. We also had a big breakthrough on the women's side as Kate Dart shattered her old 5k PR and broke the 18 minute barrier. Both Jason and Kate have come back from serious setbacks in the past six months, and I'm thrilled for them both.

For the workout this week, the A group (which may be composed of Karl and Dutch Paul as our other A groupers continue to recover from their long spring seasons) will do 3 x 1.5 miles at 5 minute pace with a 3 minute recovery. The B group, which will be considerably larger, will do 5 x 1200 also with a 3 minute recovery, 2 @ 76s, 2 @ 75s, 1 @ 74s.
