Open to members and friends. Free!
Date: Monday, April 5th
Where: Greenpoint Reformed Church – 136 Milton Street – Greenpoint, Brooklynn
Come on out to the Tuesday night run at 7:30pm.
Tonight we’re doing a “Social Relay”.
After a warm-up on the track, we’ll split up into two mixed-pace teams (start brainstorming awesome team names now!). We’ll head to the inner asphalt loop of the big lawn part of McCarren and do the workout on that circuit. One team will run at a comfortable group pace while the second team runs at a hard pace around the loop. Once the entire second team catches up with the first team, the first team takes off and runs at a hard pace to then catch up with the second team. And so on, for approximately 40 minutes, which should gets us to 4-5 miles. Then we’ll do a cool down at the track. Fun!
Things to bring: Nothing if you don’t want. At least 1 person in each group should have a watch, I’ll have one, so really, we only need one more. If someone has a Garmin, I’d love to know the distance we cover on that inner loop. One circuit is just under .5 miles.
Misha and I are going to do our best to post the Tuesday night workouts ahead of time so you can be prepared and appropriately psyched! Also, since some of our workouts are more involved in explanation, this might give you a head start.
See you tonight!
