Winter – Meet at the Olympic Oval at 7 pm Tuesday evenings for High performance Running indoors on the 450 meter track or convene at the bottom of the  29th Street NW Hill to run hill repeats on the sidewalk below the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

Spring, Summer and Fall – Tuesday Evening Intervals, Tempo Run or Hills  Repeats in Spring, Summer and Fall

Arrive at North Edworthy Park washrooms at 6:25 pm and head off at 6:30.  Once we arrive at a small open field, we’ll do either the ABC’s of Running or a brief core workout before beginning the running workout for the evening.

The running workout will typically be either of:

Intervals – repeats of 800’s, 1200’s, 1600’s or even 3200’s, sometimes in a ladder up or down;

Tempo run – either a 5 km or a 6 km tempo run, usually faster than half marathon pace, but slower than 10 km race pace; or

Hill Repeats – either 3 to 4 repeats of the South Edworthy Park driveway hill which is 1100 meters or 5 to 7 repeats of the 29th Street Sidewalk hill below the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

When the workout is complete, we’ll jog back to the picnic tables near the North Edworthy Park washroom where we’ll cool down with some gentle stretching.
