December is a perfect time to run! The ground is firm, there is rarely any snow, and getting outside in the winter feels great. There's nothing wrong with temps in the 30s and 40s, just throw on an extra layer!

For those who have signed up for Indoor Track, follow whatever Coach Jen tells you!

Alternatively, for those who have not, but to have some comradery running, we will try to schedule 1-2 days each week for a "Drop In" easy run (scheduled around those who express interest, and the weekly weather forecast).

Here is a suggested weekly regiment to stay in running shape:

Mondays - Tempo

Tuesdays - Easy

Wednesdays - either speed intervals or hill intervals (alternate)

Thursdays & Fridays - Easy

Saturdays - Long Run

Sundays - recovery

If you run 3 days/week, you should maintain your "base"

By running 4-5 days/week, you can retain your fitness (and continue to improve)

Note: 1-2 E day(s) each week can be substituted for an extra Rest day

Also, Sat and Sun can be swapped if necessary (due to schedule or weather)
