I keep hearing that there are no hills in Springfield, so I don't know what we were running on tonight. But it was a great workout, and everybody did a fine job on those hills or whatever they were.
Check Dwayne's post below for the lowdown on Thursday night.
Saturday morning at 7 we tackle 10 miles. This is just a small step up from the 8 mile run we did a couple weeks back. We'll start at Panera West, head out on the Wabash trail, and go to Bunn Park. The Springfield Park District said the drinking fountain in front of the clubhouse will be operating on Saturday, so you can get water before heading back. Water and Gatorade will be at the east end of the trail, so you can grab both on the way out and the way back.
Here's a link to the route:
If you've never run that far before, don't fret about it. Just start out at an easy pace and maintain it. If you get tired, walk a bit. And remember that we're all Frost Toes--we're all in this together!
Also, there's a Frost Toe who needs to start the run at 6:30 and doesn't want to run alone. She'll be somewhere around an 8-minute per mile pace. If you're interested in an early start at that pace, add a comment or shoot me a quick email.
