When Wednesday and Friday come about, it is about getting up early … sometimes more than usual … for many of the peeps it is early enough to get to the 10th and N Street corner for the 5:30AM run group, for others its the 6:00AM run group, and other opt for the straight suffer at 6:25AM on the West Steps where we either do the workout there (Wednesday) or we meet there and run to another nearby location in Downtown (Friday).
Today we did the usual with the two running groups, then at 6:25AM gathered before departing to Cesar Chavez Park on J Street. There we did one of the ultimate challenges. We did the Burpee-a-thon. That is 7 minutes to see how many burpees can be completed. Today’s group ranged from 70 to 100 burpees in the seven minute time period.
If you missed out on this mornings workout, there was some major news discussed with what is going on with 9RUN6 … we are adding more days of the week once August rolls around. Here is what the new August schedule will look like, starting August 1st.
Mondays – 5:30, 6 and 6:25AM at McKinley Park … the group will always meet in front of the McKinley Public Library located at 601 Alhambra Blvd, Sacramento. This will be a mostly running group … Think easy group running with a lot of conversation. At the end of each workout we will be doing a runners specific workout that will help with strength and flexibility. A little history regarding 9RUN6, McKinley Park is where it all started back in 2014!
Wednesdays – 5:30, 6 and 6:25AM at 10th & N Street / West Steps of the Capitol. 5:30 and 6:00 AM are the running groups. 6:25AM at the West Steps for the workout.
Fridays – 5:30, 6 and 6:25AM at 10th & N Street / West Steps of the Capitol. 5:30 and 6:00 AM are the running groups. 6:25AM at the West Steps to meet up before we depart for the destination set announced on our Facebook and Twitter pages on Thursday.
Saturdays – 7AM at locations to be announced each week. With most people in the group training for either Urban Cow and / or the California International Marathon, we will be doing long runs. Individuals can decide their paces and distance, but this gives us a little more motivation to stick to a training plan when there is a specific meet up time and place. This can also be a way to meet some new people who cannot make the week day workouts.
Along with getting more opportunities to workout during the week, we have created a Google calendar that is on our website under the CALENDAR tab. CLICK HERE to check it out. Upcoming races in the Sacramento Area will be posted on there as well, which will be “target” races for the group.
So share away with all of the fun, FREE, fitness gatherings that will be starting August 1st! Get the message out and lets grow the group! Because we all know that 9run6 is good for you.
