Mother Anne sprinted a 25:13 and Father Steve had a pretty awesome day himself as he bulldozed a 1:37:33 !.
Saturday 4-26-08-Easy run (first 1/2) on the tow path followed by the 2nd half @ threshold pace. Mancuso ran the first portion (6.5) at 6:39 per mile- 43 minutes andf change- towing along Max , Sameer (who ran great), and Schoepfer. At the turn around Mancuso started to roll off miles either right under or right over 5:50 to finish in 36 and change- overall a great longer run. I don’t have the exact times on all of you but it seemed like a good overall day with a longer run in different terrain, Tiffy looked great as did Facheema and on and on- really coming together for a push to the top in the next few weeks.
Friday 4/25/08- Easy run
Thursday 4/24/08- Penn for Katie everyone else hit the track for as variety of workouts. McKee, Foy, and the wonder sophs did 6 laps at goal pace followed by a short rest and a hard 2 laps. Foy hit 7:33/2:32 and everyone else settled in behind- overall not a great day. 800 dudes did their Bowerman 800 drill in sub 90, rest til 2 and kick home, all in all this grouip ran pretty well. This group followed with a few fast 200’s after a rest jog. The ladies did similar workouts- highlighted by Tiffy and Tingy. Tiffy ran 3 lap 1 lap with a rolling rest interval at 5 minutes, so she ran 4:09/ 73 for an amazing 5:22 drill in a workout!!!!! 800 girls did the same as the 800 dudes and cut 1:49/37. Tingster solo’d a 5:51/5:59 with a scant 60 seconds rest. This builds to an 11:50! You’re ready to roll girl!
