CVRR Tuesday Sessions for June 19th-August 7th 2018

~~CVRR Tuesday Training Sessions for June 19th – August 7th, 2018
Welcome CVRR runners to the Summer Training Sessions. During this period some of you will be immersed in trail running and racing while others will continue to run and race on the road. There may be some of you who do some track racing, focus on a triathlon or perhaps there is no racing in your plans. However, whatever your focus is, my hope is that you get out there and enjoy your running! The following sessions are aimed to address the different energy systems to help you maximize your enjoyment and performance as a runner. Please remember during the hot weather to make sure you hydrate yourself and try to run during the cooler periods of the day. Again, if you are racing always give yourself a few easy days prior and adequate recovery afterwards – listen to your body – if you feel extra tired back off your training!

Please note if the Tuesday Track Session is cancelled feel free to follow the workouts posted on your own time!
