Weekend Wrap & Wednesday Workout

From Coach Jerry:

We had some very nice performances at the Midsummer Night Mile on Friday, led by Texas Paul. Paul stunned trackside observers, who had been led to believe by the pre-race media blitz that he would drop out at 1200 meters, by throwing caution to the wind and going for the victory. Paul came up short of the win, but there's no shame for a marathoner getting outkicked by a guy who ran sub 1:48 this year, and who ran sub 3:59 less than two years ago. Jake and Dickson also looked good out there, and running this fast this early, off of no speed work, demonstrates that there are big things to come from all three of them in the coming months.

The weather on Wednesday should be tolerable, so we can continue to transition into some longer intervals. The A group, which will likely be Karl and Dutch Paul, will do 2 x 2 miles in 10 minutes. The B group, which includes several folks who are racing this weekend, will do 2 x mile, 2 x 800, 4 x 400. The miles will be @ 5:05, 5:00, the 8s @ 2:26, and the 4s will be 2 @ 70, 2 @ 68. We'll take a 3 minute recovery on all of it, and we can add in a little extra recovery if necessary. I'll send the women's workout separately. See you Wednesday.
