5/23/22 Monday speed test

We move to the summer start times on Monday/Wednesday this week: 7PM.

Our track workout on Monday (at 7PM) is at a different location: Thomas Park (corner of Francis and Puryear Dr.).

What do you when your track is being resurfaced? A race of course, but not one based on how fast you can run. Instead, this race will test your ability to predict how fast you can run a 5K (3.1 miles). Here is the route: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1579210897. Again, your goal will be to predict your finish time—minus your watch. [If you are addicted to Garmin Connect or Strava, and feel compelled to wear a watch, please put it in a mode that does not display your pace/time (or cover the face).] We will bring a spreadsheet for you to record your predicted time before the race. The course was selected to minimize traffic hazards. You will, though, be crossing a number of 4-way stops. Please use caution at the stops and, as always, run on the left side of the road.
