Tuesday nights are all about fun, variety, and hard work: pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zone to increase speed and stamina.
Although we don’t recommend TNT for beginners, you certainly don’t need to be a “fast” runner. You should be able to run 5-6 miles and have a rough idea of what paces you’re capable of. (Check out http://www.mcmillanrunning.com to see your theoretical 10K, half marathon, etc. pace.) Our warm-up and cool-down jogs are usually done at 8:30-9:30 minutes per mile. TNT is great for runners who want to get faster in a fun, low-key, supportive atmosphere. After we finish our workouts we do core on the track and often enjoy a cold beer together.
