Week of 5/23/16: Workouts, MMDay 5K/10K on Memorial Day

Hi Folks,

We’re closing in on the major phase of the Dipsea training. You can take advantage of the upcoming long weekend to run Dipsea: Saturday out/back to Cardiac; Sunday easy trail mileage without hills, e.g., around Bon Tempe and Lagunitas Lakes. Monday help work MMDay Races.

If running MMDay races for Tamalpa age division teams, get in some easy mileage Saturday, off Sunday and race Monday.

A request:  MMDay 5K/10K is Tamalpa’s main fundraiser event – and we host the PA/USATF 10K Championships. This requires a good number of volunteers involved with all aspects of putting on the races: food and refreshments pickups, tables, chairs, race day reg team and set up; course monitors, aid stations and more. This will be my yearly course set up and breakdown plus lead biking since 1977.

So, if you’re running Dipsea, get in a solid Saturday and Sunday; then if you would, help work MMDay Races on Monday. It will only the morning hours, then the rest of your day is free. Those who run the race can also help with clean up. Last year that was accomplished quickly as Club members pitched in: many hands make the work go by quickly!

I believe our club has hosted a classy 10K championship race that’s produced close to a 100  single age and age group records. The race has been ranked in the top twenty 10K’s in California.


Kevin makes podium at The Alcatraz Aquathon event- swim from the Rock to Aquatic Park or East Beach plus a run. 

5/24/16 TUESDAY 8:45 am TEMPO on MV bike path; meet at “log cabin.” We’ll run the usual warm up to the north end of the bike path; then start our tempo distances.

5/25/16 WEDNESDAY 8:15 am MADISON AV GM workout with Kees at Warren’s (148 Madison Av, two blocks from the Civic Center).

5/26/16 THURSDAY 7:30 & 8:45 am TRACK at COM. Will be okay to run the somewhat abbreviated but quality workout. Should be okay because you have extra day of rest nor the race on Monday.
