When and Where

Running with others is a great way to beat the winter doldrums.
Portland is known for its cool and damp winters. Late fall and winter running at Catlin Gabel is no exception. There you should come prepared. Here’s some guidelines to help for a great experience.
Training Updates and Inclement Water Cancellations
Check ORRC’s Facebook for updated information and whether training is cancelled due to inclement weather conditions.
Repeats and Recovery
Repeat sessions are designed for experienced runners. As a guide, you should not be doing repeat training if you weekly mileage is less than 20 miles per week, and 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 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:
