Weekend Workouts: Cross Country is here!

From Coach Jerry:

While it sure didn't feel like it last night at the track, fall is here, and that means cross country season has arrived. The greener pastures of the cell tower field are calling our name, and on Saturday morning, we'll make our long awaited return. We'll plan to meet at 9 for the warm up, and start the workout at 9:40. The idea this week is simply to get acclimated to running on grass again, so to ease that transition the workout for the men will be 3 x 10 minutes at tempo pace, with a 3 minute recovery, and the women will do 3 x 8 minutes at tempo pace, also with a 3 minute recovery. For those of you who have never had the pleasure, here are the directions. If you have any questions on logistics, let me know.

There will also be a Sunday workout, which is geared to the half marathon crowd, but which is open to anyone who can't make it on Saturday.  I will send the specifics on the Sunday workout to the half group only; if anyone else wants to come out, let me know.
Finally, I know that many of you are planning to run the Run Geek Run 8k next Saturday.  If you have not already done so, please sign up now.  You cannot enter on race day, and on-line registration will close early next week, so take a minute and get it out of the way.
