29.09.2010 18:30 to 20:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: TBD

I said I would organise - but I can't decide what to organise this week.

Options:

1) Start at Enge - usual pace along the Sihl out to Adliswil and back

2) Start at Romerhof - single loop run over Dolder before dropping down to the lake around Tiefenbrunnen - then back to Bellevue

3) Start Enge/Paradeplatz - low level Uetliberg run

4) Intervals at Wiedikon Track. We could do a mix of long and short intervals at the track - 3km/2km/1km at increasing speeds for example.

5) Combination of 3&4

Let me know which you would prefer.
RSVP'd Yes: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • dodgyken - I'd be keen to do intervals with you guys
  • Dijonaise - I am keen on intervals (shorter one 600 or 800m?)
  • sylvain74 - my vote goes for 800m repeats
RSVP'd No: 4
  • Jed - Sorry about the false positive, the guy in the office next to mine is defending.
  • pabcbc - I am not a big interval fan so I will skip this meet. Have fun.
  • Assassin - Nah, but thanks for organizing. I'll be hitting the weights thinking of you guys instead. :)
  • Bartholemew - sorry for the yeahbutnobutyeahbut....BUT I wouldn't be able to make it there until you are nearly through anyway. Going to yoga instead...will make a point of coming next week though!

Bart - you are more than welcome to run at your pace round the track - gives you chance to gauge your own pace - and learn how it feels to try 5-10-15 seconds per KM quicker.

Consider it a learning experience!

Bart: what is this new tune Don't act smart, just show up

Ok, so is Intervals decided guys? Where are we meeting? I don't remember how to reach the track, was it the same one where we did last year November.

Re: Zurich Running/Jogging Group

Meeting point: Wiedikon track 1830 - this is 5mins walk from Wiedikon station - between Manessastrasse and Sihlpromenade.

We will be there for around 45mins. We can then head off for a gentle run in the lower slopes of the Uetliberg for 30mins.

Options for intervals:
800m repeats
4*2km @ 4:25 per km pace

Re: Zurich Running/Jogging Group

Looks like I am out-voted for the longer intervals

Pace time = seconds per 200m. 55=4:35 per km; 50=4:10 per km

800m @ 55 - 200m jog
800m @ 54 - 200m jog
800m @ 53 - 200m jog
800m @ 52 - 200m jog
800m @ 51

400m walk

Repeat above - 2 quicker than set 1

OPTIONAL: 5.9km gentle cool-down jog/run

My head hurts

The reason I vote for shorter intervals is it is a quick and more humane way of "dealing" with people

The weather is turning bright now, so looking forward to it. C ya,

Re: Zurich Running/Jogging Group

Super run, still reeling under the runner's high

Just wanted to add my preferences, Wiedikon suits me perfectly (180 seconds by train from HB) and Intervals are nice too...so count me in for the next mid-week run if it is U or I.
