The Plan

Here is our Frost Toes training plan.

We will begin Saturday, October 4 by running the 5 mile Heroes Run For Hope. There's still time to register for this race; the registration fee is $20 and the event is a fund raiser for the Marrow Foundation.

The Heroes Run finishes in the Chatham Community Park (aka South Park), and there will be a sign where the Frost Toes are supposed to gather after the race. Please wait for me, because I'm not going to be setting a PR that day. This will be a chance for you to sign a waiver and provide your contact information as well as an emergency contact.

The following Tuesday and Thursday nights we'll be in Washington Park. Keep an eye on this blog for details on the planned workout.

Then, on Oct 11, we'll meet at Panera West for a 6 mile run. The remaining Saturday distances will be:

October 18 8 miles
October 25 6 miles on the course--meet at FitClub West
November 1 9 miles
November 8 7 miles
November 15 10 mile practice run on the course--meet at FitClub West
November 22 8 miles
November 29 6.2 miles on the Abe's Amble course
December 7 RACE DAY

I'm looking forward to the second year of Frost Toes fun!

FYI - Future Toes!

All Thursday runs will be HALF the distance of the planned long run for the week. These runs should be at a comfortable pace, one at which you can converse with your running partners. During the early part of the season - we'll be getting out of the park as much as possible before it gets dark. Routes for Thursday will be posted on Tuesday evenings.

Be prepared to run at dusk - bring blinking lights to attach to your running clothes, wear reflective, bright clothing, and dress in layers as appropriate for fall weather.

I was wondering does the T, Th start next week (10/7). I know dumb question. As for the time start for those evenings...any chance of changing it for 5:45 pm...just wondering.

Oh, robochuck! A previous post says, "Things will be different on Tuesday, Oct 7, when we begin our hill workouts in Washington Park. Our target time for the workouts will be 5:30; if people can't make it by that time, we'll see if we need to move the time back to 5:45."

I'd like to try a 5:30 start the first week or two; we can move it to 5:45 if more "robochucks" request the later start. It's all about the Frost Toes and their needs!

Thanks for the update. I know some maybe wondering if you were set on the time frame.

BTW, if there are more RoboChucks out there that would be scary.
