short report on track workout on 7/15/11 
Hi Everyone,

To highlight that our track workouts are for everyone, in recent weeks, ages have ranged from 16-70. Pace wise (using 5k pace) people have ranged from sub 5 minute pace to over 9 minute pace. We have also had two genders coming.

Coach Mike Barnow welcomes all and the workouts are open to all. Next track workout will be Friday July 22 at Suny New Paltz using the college track. Be warmed up and ready for faster running at 6:15pm. We are alternating between two tracks. So, that people who live either east or west of the Shawangunk Ridge or north and south have the ability to come. On 7/22 we are at the Suny New Paltz track, 0n 7/29 we are at the Rondout Valley High School track in Accord on Kyserike Rd just south of Stone Ridge. On 8/5 we are back at New Paltz. On 8/12 back at Rondout. I think you get the idea :)

This Sunday 7/17 our long run is from Spring Farm/Mohonk Preserve

This Monday 7/18 the second race in our Summer XC Series "Lou's Run" is at Spring Farm- the kids one half mile race is at 6:30pm. The kids one mile race approx 6:45pm and the adult race is at 7pm.

For more information about club activites, workouts, races etc etc you can reach me at or 845-339-5474.

Track workout for those not able to come Friday 7/15 
Hi Everyone,

I talked with Coach Mike Barnow today and he suggested a workout for people who could not make the Friday night session 7/15 at Rondout.

He said people should try (880,800,1600.800,800) with 4 minutes of jogging recovery between each. Run the first two 800's at about 5k race pace, the 1600 a bit slower, and then if you feel good run the last two 800's a bit faster then 5k race pace. Remember to warm up well.

I suspect that this will be one of the workouts for people Friday night and I bet he will also have a workout with longer intervals for runners planning on a marathon

Remember, Friday night July 15 we are at the Rondout Valley High track
in Accord on Kyserike Rd. Be warmed up and ready for faster running at 6:15pm

:) Steve
