Welcome to the website of the Somerville Road Runners, Somerville Massachusetts' oldest running club. Bordering Boston and Cambridge, we're a motley crew that works hard, but doesn't let that get in the way of having a good time. SRR is a charitable, non-profit organization that sponsors many events a year including weekly runs, track workouts, annual races and even competitive but delicious cook-offs! Our club welcomes new members of all abilities. Read on to find out what we've been up to lately.
Where: 301 Canal Street, Assembly Square, Somerville MA (map)

This week we go back to some shorter, faster stuff
Groups A, B:
Groups C, D:
Groups E, F
September 1 - 7:00 PM, Outdoor Track
Do reps of 1600 meters taking short rests in between. The number of reps you do depends upon your current weekly mileage
Note that the volumes I've listed here are what I would consider minimums. This is a workout in which it is OK to add an extra rep or two if you feel OK. Also, if you prefer to combine these into larger blocks of 3200 meters, feel free to do so. Just double the rest
And what is the rest? Well normally I schedule 1:00 rest for everyone. But since some groups take longer than others to cover a 1600, I really should probably scale the rest. So here is your guide:
December 14 -- Yulefest 5K, Cambridge MA
January 18 -- Lazy Dog 3 Miler, Lynn MA
February 1 -- Super Sunday 5 Miler, Cambridge MA
March 15 -- New Bedford Half Marathon, New Bedford MA
April 4 -- Shifters 5K, Waltham MA
May 10 -- MOM's Run 5K, Somerville MA
