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
Storm Through Somerville

SRR Track Sessions are now outdoors at Tufts Ellis Oval.
Tuesday Apr 9 - 6:30 PM
One final outdoor workout before our Spring Break. After this week, we will not resume outdoor sessions until Tuesday, May 7.
This week we do “The Lou”
All Groups: 4800 meters continuous. Think of this as 6 x 800 meters continuous. Run the first 800 meters at your marathon pace. Then run each successive 800 four seconds faster than the previous one (i.e. 2 seconds faster per lap).
By the 6th and final 800, you should be somewhere around or faster than THRESHOLD pace.
Anyone not running Boston who feels they need more should (after a 1 lap jog recovery) run an extra 800 meters at INTERVAL. Feel free to make it 2 x 800 if you are so inclined.
