CVRR Tuesday Session for June 27th, 2017

CVRR Tuesday Session for June 27th, 2017 Hello CVRR runners and well done to those who competed in the Comox Valley Cougars Track Meet over the weekend! What brilliant summer weather! This week we will be off the track for some mixed pace grass running. For those who are planning to race the 5th Street Mile on July 1st this will be a good tune-up. Session Focus: Mixed pace running to sharpen speed while also building strength endurance. • Warm-up run of 10-20 minutes • Dynamics @ 5:10 PM with stretching and drills • Workout: 8 -10 x 1 minute at your road mile race pace (fairly hard) off 1 minute easy run/jog. Focus on running relaxed (not full out) with good form! If you are straining then you need to back off a little. • Cooldown run of 10-20 minutes easy Make sure you bring some water along in case it is hot! See you on Tuesday! Coach Neil
