Wahoo Beginners Running Group: A Hot Time Tonight

May 31, 2011

It is hard to believe, but last Tuesday night was sunny with temps in the 90's. We did our 5K in the warmth of the sun out Circleville and Sleepy Hollow roads and back. Nine of us braved the heat. Marty Mazur came to run with us and ran 27:45, with your truly right behind him with 27:51, followed by Dave Lloyd with a 29:11. Hot on his heels was Liz Troisi with a 29:13, Michelle Christensen was very close with 29:37, Pam Scott pulling along Jim Thor both ran well for the heat. Pam 31:13 and Jim 31:29. David DeGroote was walking after his operation and Fernand Seuchie came a little late so he only got in a mile and a Half. We all enjoyed the time at the end when it was done. Hope to see you next week at Tudec Park for some 1/4's, and don't forget the Club meeting next week also. Keep running! - Jerry

Wahoo Beginners Running Group: Back At The Old Homestead

May 24, 2011

The Wahoo Group found our way to Homestead Park where we ran 3 person relays of .2 of a mile. We were able to make 2 teams, but could have used one more person for a third team. With 8 runners one more would have been great. The team of Michelle Christensen, Sheny Li, and Liz Troisi ran 24.16. The team of Jerry Steffy, Dave Lloyd, and Jim Thor worked hard to catch them with a 24.28 time for the 6 x .2 per person. The sun was shining and the air was cool and the fun was great. we are looking forward to more of you to come on Tuesday night to run with us. Next week we are at the same place, Homestead Park, for a 5K run. Hope you can make it. We'd like to see you all!

Wahoo Beginners Running Group: Getting The Heart Rate Up

May 10, 2011

We had 8 runners last night. I am sure it was because it was not raining. We ran 2x.64 to raise heart rate. We also had a new runner with us, Liz Troisi, who ran well and seemed to have a good time. Denise Weaver, Pam Scott, Shena Li, Jim Thor, Jerry Steffy, and Michelle Christensen did the run and got their heart rate up around 160 and recovered quickly. Next week we are at the same place and will be running 4x1/4's 2 person relays, hope you can make it to the run! The best way to get good at something is do every day! Jerry

April 26, 2011

This year seem to be the year of the rains. We had four little wet Indians for our run. Jerry Steffy, Pam Scott. David Lloyd, and Kevin Polek. we were going run Indians but with only 4 we would have been sprinting more then recovering, so we did  build up instead. Well, til the next Tuesday's rain storm, keep running! - Jerry
