What’s Next?

“Pacing Night” is Thursday, March 6, at the Andy Payne Track at Claremore High School. 6PM start. Everyone should come prepared to go four laps; we’ll time you for that, which is our tentative sorting into the 8 pace groups. It will also give you a base line for fitness, and we’ll measure again after 10 weeks, to see your improvement.

Note, you must sign up to participate in our session–no cost to do it, but we need to know who is participating for safety reasons. If not signed up yet, you can come to the Pacing Night and do it there. If you cannot make it to Pacing Night, join us at Claremore Lake on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning March 11 and sign up there. We start our workouts at promptly at 6:00 pm, so come early to sign up. BUT, you must sign up before the second week of the session; the training is progressive, and if you miss more than the first two weeks, you will miss out on the basics.

TRAIN FUN!

It’s 2014. ALREADY!!

We are starting to stir from our long winter’s nap.

Check back soon for details of the next, fabulous session: it will start in early March 2014.

Thanks for your patience.

Stay warm and get ready to be fit.

Session for 5/2/2013 Cancelled

The fitness sessions for Thursday, May 2, 2013 have been cancelled do to sleet, rain, and bone-chilling, nose-numbing, skin-icing wind chill.

Too bad we can’t bottle this weather and save some for Summer.

Stay warm and dry, all. Don’t forget to cover you tender plants, too.
