2013 training season kicks off!

Indoor track started this morning with 17 TE ladies registered so far… It was a great first morning, with Coach Mary easing us back into training with a lecture on training tips, running form, etc. before sending us out onto the track to warm up the chilly winter morning with some 400m intervals.

It’s not too late to join the indoor track series…check out the membership page for more details on how to sign up! Also, note that there is NO TRACK practice next week due to a previously scheduled MIT collegiate race using the space–consult the google calendar for a complete list of track dates.

Up next…start of swim practice on Wednesday. Happy new year ladies!
