Announcements (e-mail from Cristina R 8/30):

1. Tuesday speed workout (e-mail from Brendan):

After a successful weekend of racing, we've got two options this coming Tuesday: long repeats or a fartlek. 

Tuesday Tempo Workout
1.5 miles, 3min rest
1 mile, 2min rest
1/2 mile, 4min rest
Repeat as necessary

Tuesday Speed Workout
10 x 30 sec (5k-3k)/3min easy

5:45 pm - Meet at FF
5:50 pm - Early birds leave
5:55 pm - Late birds leave

Like I mentioned last week, my schedule is such that I do my best tempo workouts on Mondays, so on Tuesday's, I'll be doing an easy fartlek to keep up my leg speed during the long and (relatively) slow miles of my marathon training. If you feel worn down or like you need more speed in your week, then feel free to join me in my fartlek. It'll be run on the same course as the long intervals. 

The goal of Tuesday's tempo workout is to get 30-40 minutes worth of tempo running. Here are my suggestions based on your running speeds. The effort should be comfortably hard.
