Hill Repeats with a Bunch of MooreOns
Last night I met my MooreOnRunners Intermediate Group for Hill Repeats and Speed Drills. The weather was perfect and we had a great turnout.
There are all kinds of excuses you can use to not run and coming up with one when you know you are about to do a hard workout is really easy. So seeing so many runners there, ready to go, really was amazing.
We warmed up with a short run and then headed to the bottom of the Cooper River Bridge. The workout is pretty simple: 90 seconds hard pace up and walk back down for a recovery x 6.
A lot of the group didn't have watches (even though I reminded them to bring them!) to time themselves going up so I brought a whistle (I never get to use my whistle).
The hard part of this workout is not stopping or slowing down too much before the end of the 90 seconds. It
might not seem that long at first, but it seems like it's an eternity the more repeats you do.
The group ran really strong. I was super impressed with their effort and how they stayed with it for the whole workout.
After the group finished, we ran back to the parking lot and I set up my cones for speed drills. I almost laughed when I saw their faces :)
Again, the group stayed with me as I had them do sprints, cross overs, sliders, and bounding drills. When we
finished I could tell they had worked hard.
One of the amazing things is that most of this group just finished my Couch to 5K program at the beginning of May! Pretty impressive, if you ask me.
The group will continue building their base mileage for the rest of the month and they have decided to train
for a 5-6 mile midnight run in July.
My favorite part of coaching this group is that I get to throw out some crazy ideas for a goal race or run and
they get to pick what they want to do as a group. The only rules are that it has to be something a little out of the ordinary and it has to be an adventure!
Plus, I get to say I'm running with a bunch of MooreOns!
Don't miss out on our next Couch to 5K class!
Registration is now open for the August to September class!
Next Class Starts August 4th!
Have you ever wanted to run a 5K? Do you want to get back into running after taking time off?
Start a new adventure by getting off the couch and to the finish line of a 5K race!
