"I feel the need...the need for speed!"

Well, we've got you covered at GGTC track night this Wednesday! See below for everything you need to know and email me at run@ggtc.org with any questions.

GGTC Track Kick Off
6:45 – 8 PMWednesday
Kezar Stadium (south/east lower bleachers)
Followed by drinks at Kezar Pub (delicious...)

What to bring: Dress warm! Bring watch, hydration fluid and an extra set of warm, dry clothes.

Schedule:
6:30 PM         Coach Dorette on site for questions.
6:45 PM         Welcome and discussion (announcements, general format, track 101 & etiquette revisited, 2-mi assessment on Feb 19)
7:00 PM         Warm up, dynamic run drills, main set
7:50 PM         Cool down/stretch
8:00 PM         Head to Kezar Pub for libations and fun!
 
Workout: The goal of this workout is to prepare runners for a 2-mi assessment in order to determine individual track paces.
  •  4 x 100 strides (easy on the curves) to get the blood pumping and lactic running
  •  2 x 400 (200 easy recovery run); 1 x 800 (~ 2 min rest interval or as determined by group/coach) – repeat three times.
The goal is to reduce pace within each set by taking your 400 time to create your new 800 time. Each set is progressively faster.

See you Wednesday!

GGTC Run Director
