The Return of Tuesday Night Track
By: Tim Smith
In June we return to in-person, Tuesday Night Track!
Things continue to evolve, so make sure you read the weekly emails to get updates as times and locations may change.
On top of TNT, this month we are also kicking off the New Hampshire Grand Prix. The first event of the NHGP is a virtual 5k. You can run it on your own and then upload your times. However, we are also offering the opportunity of running it with our club. We will be running this on the Lebanon High School track, Wednesday, June 9 at 5:30. There will also be a second chance to run the 5k on June 29 at 5:30 on the Hanover High track.
Starting June 15 (again at 5:30) we are planning on a regular TNT.
We are following the Lebanon Rec. Covid protocol for these events. That means you need to sign up and fill out the Covid questionnaire before coming (https://lebanonnh.gov/play), and we'll take temperatures once you have arrived.
I know you all are vaccinated but still come with a mask. We will use masks when we are standing around at the beginning. Once we break into pace groups and start running, you can be mask-less.
I expect these protocols to evolve over the next month or so.
So what is in store for TNT this season?
TNT will be geared towards the (shortened) New Hampshire Grand Prix series. The series starts with a 5k in June, then a 5 mile race in July & August, a 10k in September and a half marathon at the beginning of November. So we are tuned to short/fast/sweet workouts this month, and then moving towards 5mile-10k workouts for the rest of the summer.
I actually like this, this shorter/faster stuff is a new experience after a year long hiatus from the track.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon!
