Need some running motivation during the week? We have you covered. Somerville Road Runners offer several organized runs throughout the week. Mondays we run out of the Burren in East Somerville, Tuesday's we have track @ Tufts, and Thursday we run out of Casey's in East Somerville.
SRR hosts a free weekly 5K Fun Run on Monday nights at 6:45 PM at the Burren Pub and Restaurant (247 Elm Street) in Davis Sq, Somerville. No need to sign up in advance - just show up by 6:45 PM and sign in when you arrive.
We gather inside the Burren, either in the back room or the basement. If we're in the basement, you should see a sign near the bar telling us that we're meeting downstairs. Either way, you can leave your things in the Burren during the run, though be thoughtful about bringing valuables. We've never had anything go missing, but nobody is watching our things while we're out on our run.
Every Thursday evening - We Leave Casey's Bar on 171 Broadway, Somerville @ 7:08 PM to head to the start. Race starts at 7:15PM
Speed + Winter Hill = Roadkill

Tatyana Podznyakova Workout
One continuous run on the track. It will be either 4800, 6400, or 8000 meters, depending upon your current, weekly mileage.
Alternate the pace every 800 meters back-and-forth between THRESHOLD pace and MARATHON pace.
Start out THRESHOLD or MP. It’s up to you
• Those running less than 45 miles per week: Do 4800 meters (i.e. 6 x 800)
• Those running over 45 miles per week: Do 6400 meters (i.e. 8 x 800)
If you are running a lot more than 45 miles per week, feel free to make that 8000 meters (i.e. 10 x 800) but it's up to you.
