Week of 12/19/16: Workouts this week during Holiday break

Hi Folks,

Update for the group workouts. I will be away after Wednesday morning workout, but will post Thursday Track session for those who are here. I won’t have much of training tips posted this week: busy week with Holiday preparations. It becomes more difficult to balance the enjoyable times with the stressful times.

LOOKING AHEAD:  Traditional run – RRGrade 8M on New Year’s Day, 1-1-17 morning, which features an Open House at the Gravity Museum located at the top. Each year they have snacks and drinks for the visitors in return for any donations. This run is also more on the warmer and sunnier side of the mountain.

12/19/16 TUESDAY 9 am. Special location for HILL REPEATS/Miles by GG Bridge:; meet at Discovery Museum parking lot. We’ll do repeats on hill that goes under GG Bridge to the top. Alyce has made a call out to the group to join in! Those who have a little time after the workout can meet at Bayside Cafe ( where the south end of the MV bike path ends by Mikes Bikes – and Bayside Cafe)…
