OCT 3, 2018 WAWA: “Early Fall Track Workout”

I was telling a friend that I was ready for a track workout this week, given the crisp mornings lately.  Halloween will be here before we know it!

So….outdoor track workout it IS for tomorrow morning!

Temps will be a cool 65 degrees in the morning!  Great temps for running!  Dark outside so bring some reflective gear for our run “to-from” the track.

Here’s the workout:
