ORRC’s year-round Tuesday night workouts are between 6 and 7 p.m. Beginning March 13, 2018, for the Spring, Summer and early Fall months, group runs are held at the Cedar Hills Recreation Center —and beginning October 30, 2018, for the late Fall and Winter months, we switch to a schedule of track workouts at Catlin Gabel School. Tuesday evening workouts are open to all runners and walkers. You do not need to be an ORRC club member to participate. All abilities are welcome, fast and slow runners and walkers, fast and incoherent talkers, young and old alike. We also love to socialize. So on the first Tuesday of each month, ORRC hosts free pizza and beer afterwards, shortly after practice at 7:15 pm at Godfather’s Pizza, 11140 SW Barnes, Portland. See you there!
Tuesday Night Training – Nov 13, 2018 – Mar 5, 2019
When and Where
Arrive at Catlin Gabel School Track, 8825 SW Barnes Rd, Portland, OR, early to stretch and warm up. Start time is 6 p.m. The track is located at the rear (north end) of school in a bowl.
Running with others is a great way to beat the winter doldrums.
Portland is known for it’s cool and damp winters. Late fall and winter running at Catlin Gabel is no exception. Therefore you should come prepared. Here’s some guidelines to help for a great experience:
Training Updates and Inclement Weather Cancellations
Repeats and Recovery
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 exercise.
To keep the workouts simple, recoveries will generally be 200-400 meters between intervals depending on how long the interval is. You can always adjust your workout accordingly if you want to do more or less speed.
For those who just want to run or walk a designated distance, the Catlin Gabel is perfect. The stadium lit track, and a group of up to 40 runners/walkers makes for an inviting experience in what otherwise would be a dark and dreary evening at home.
The following is the interval training schedule for those wishing to participate in this training:
