What time? Choose either 6am or 6pm. Whatever works best for your schedule from week to week.
Where? Both sessions will be held at Lipscomb Academy Football Stadium (and track)
1027 Caldwell Ln, Nashville, TN 37204
What time do they start? We say the sessions start at 6am and 6pm, but really I want your warm-up laps completed by 6:00 so we can come together for a summary of the day's workout and 2 progressive strides before we start.
What do I wear? Wear your fave workout clothes and consider a lighter weight shoe than what you typically train in. Your normal kicks are fine, but rotating a few different shoes allows you to have the right tool for what you want to accomplish. On the track we want to run fast and work on our form so a lighter weight shoe can be a great tool for that. Shameless plug for our sponsor, Saucony - you may want to take a look at something like the Kinvara or the Freedom.
What should I bring? Two things are mandatory - a watch and water bottle filled with your fave non-alcoholic drink. My preferences would be water, Tailwind or Scratch. If you'd like, consider a towel, too!
What's the weather policy? Safety is my utmost importance, but last I checked a little rain never hurt anyone. I go by most race policies which is that we will run unless there is lightning in the area. Because our weather is so fickle, I don't typically make a call to cancel until I'm standing on site. If I cancel, there is no makeup session.
What if I can't make a session? Life happens or sometimes work takes you out of town. I don't keep attendance. Try to do the workout, but if you can't do it Tuesday or Wednesday and you have a hard effort planned for the weekend (race or long run) then let it go, friend.
As a general rule of running, don't try to make up a missed workout or mileage.
