Weekly Recap/Workout Plan

From Coach Jerry:


We had some excellent performances at the Colonial Relays this weekend. Congratulations to Big City for once again lowering his club record in the 800. Chuck is getting better every week, and there’s every reason to think that trend will continue. Ryan Hanson narrowly missed breaking his club record in the 3000. Ryan ran aggressively throughout, and led for most of the second half of the race before being out kicked in the final 200 by an athlete whose PR is much, much faster than Ryan's. When Ryan gets into races at Penn and Princeton where he doesn’t have to do the work, he’s going to run some huge PRs. Ryan Witters also lead for much of his heat in the 1500, and while he could not hold on in the final stages, he will be ready to roll later in the month at 1500 and 5k. Well done, men!


We’ve got a huge weekend coming up, with various track and road races on Saturday, and Boston on Monday. We’re going to get a jump on the big weekend by practicing on TUESDAY at BCC.

For the men, there will be at least two options. The track/road group will do 400s. Sam is going to do 8 x 4, 2 @ 68, 2 @ 66, 2 @ 64, 2 @ 62, all with a 400 recovery. Hanson and Witty, and anyone else who fells ambitious, are going to do an extra set of 2 at the end in 60. On the other end of the spectrum, the Boston group will do a 3 mile tempo at goal pace. If you aren’t running Boston and don’t want to run hard 400s, let me know, and we’ll come up with a third option.

I'll send the women's workout separately.

Also, if anyone can’t make it Tuesday, I’m planning to be at American on Wednesday, so let me know if you want to come out then.

See you at BCC tomorrow.
