Weekly Workouts

After mile repeats in the Arboretum 9/20/2011

GVH officially meets three times a week for workouts. Unless otherwise noted, all runs start and finish from Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA. If you are new, introduce yourself so we can watch out for you.

The following workouts have met on regular basis for years.

Tuesday nights - 5:45 p.m.
The Speed Workout
This workout changes every week, but it usually includes a 1 - 2 mile warm-up, 2 - 4 miles of tempo or intervals, and a 1 - 2 mile cool down. If you are a slower runner, you can usually keep up with the warm up and cool down, then adjust the speed portion to your ability. If you want to become a faster runner, this is the workout to make. 

Thursday Morning - 5:55 a.m.
This group meets at Mercedes and Grande in North Davis and departs promptly at 5:55 am. The workout usually has a 2 mile warm up, a 2 - 3 mile tempo, and a 1 mile cool down. We try to be finished by 7 am since most of us have to go to work.

Thursday nights - 5:45 p.m. (meeting time); 5:55 p.m. (departure time)
These are less intense workouts with easy running and/or recovery running of 5-8 miles.
Beginners are welcome!
No runner is ever left behind on these workouts! Come on out!

Saturday mornings - 8:00 a.m.
The standard distances are 7 or 10 miles, usually at a social pace. Marathoners often tack on additional miles before or after.
