Thursday Night Central Park Workout

Due to conditions at the East River Park track, some Whippets will do a speed workout on a flat section of Central Park’s roadways.

Meet inside the atrium the Time Warner Center (at Columbus Circle), near the main entrance, next to escalator that heads down to Whole Foods Market.  We’ll describe the workout and start our warmup from there.

If you want to meet us on the course, in past weeks we have run on the flat east side stretch between 85th and 95th. We usually meet a secondary group of runners at 7:20 on the East Side Drive at around 85th St.

Central Park Training Run

Our Tuesday night Central Park training workouts are typically tempo runs or hill repeats.  These workouts are usually very well attended with a wide variety of paces.

The meeting spot is at the 72nd street transverse by Bethesda Fountain. There we’ll give the full workout details, including distance, pacing groups, expected run time, and where we plan on meeting at the end. You can expect a typical workout to be between 5 and 8 miles (or less during hill workouts).

If it’s your first time meeting us, feel free to come a few minutes early with any questions.  There are many other groups who meet on 72nd St so look for the one with folks in Whippet singlets.

Please note that there is no place to store bags inside Central Park. Pack light, or store your bags at a nearby gym if you are a member. Another option is the New York Running Company at the Time Warner Center, which stays open until 9pm: http://www.therunningcompany.net/new-yorks-homepage

When you RSVP, please post your pace time and/or training run distance for the day.

Brooklyn Weekend Run

We are now doing our Brooklyn runs on Saturdays.  We’ll try to mix up the routes as much as possible so we don’t get too bored doing lops of Prospect Park.  This will mainly serve as an opportunity for a long run.  If you have any ideas for courses, please let us know!

Prospect Park Thursday Speed Workout

We are hosting weekly “track” workouts at Prospect Park every Thursday evening. The workouts will be identical to the East River Park Track workout of the week, which will be posted at least 24 hours beforehand.

Although there is no track at Prospect Park, we’ll find the flattest part of the park to do the scheduled workout.

All paces are welcome. Please comment in Talk about this Meetup if you have any questions!
