Warm-Up & Cool Down All runners/walkers should warm-up
before working out with 15-20 minutes of easy jogging or walking.
From the Cedar Hills Recreation Center (Spring and Summer) we will do a slow group
warm-up for one and a half miles down and around a local neighborhood
park and lake. Repeat runners include 100-meter strides. Don't
forget a light stretch after warm-up and cool down and stretch
after your workout for 10-20 minutes. Caution: Water fountains
and bathrooms are available in the Cedar Hills Recreation
Water Warning: There is generally no water available
on the running route once we start the workout. Packing a
water bottle or stashing it on the course is highly recommended.
Repeat sessions are designed for experienced runners. As a
guide - you should not be doing repeat training if your weekly
mileage is less than 20 miles per week and no more than 10%
of your weekly mileage should be composed of repeat sessions.
Be sure to take a rest day or a very easy run day after any
speed workouts. All participants should be medically able
and properly trained before participating in any physical
Repeat Recovery: To keep the workouts simple, recoveries
will generally be one half the distance of the stated repeat.
For example, if the repeat is ½ mile, recovery will be ¼ mile.
Recoveries between sets (indicated by ( ), will be ¼ mile
regardless of last repeat. All recoveries will be at least
¼ mile at the Cedar Hills Recreation Center location (Spring and Summer only).
