Week 11 Email

What a fabulous evening we had for our final night and 5K goal event!  94 of you showed up for our last night and many of you had family/friends cheering you on. Thank you to our many volunteers, including the Grand Strand Running Club members and the folks at Coastal Timing.

You did a wonderful job and we're so proud of you!

5K RACE RESULTS:  First, here are some statistics:

We had 92 finishers
Average age was 56.25 (age range was 16-77 years)
Median time was 48:07
Median pace was 15:31
You can access the results by clicking on the link below (you can search for your name or bib# for your specific results and you can look at the list of participants and their results):

We've also created a spreadsheet that provides additional information for all of our participants, including pace per mile, animal group, and town. See the spreadsheet below (all 3 pages saved as images attached to this email).

TOPIC: Getting Better - Spring 2024 workshops may be finished but you can continue to improve.  The training principles are the same:  Stress + Rest = Improvement. Experiment with some new workouts.  Try adding one new stress to your week like speed work, hills, races … but no more than 10% increase each week (further or faster or more frequently or tougher).

Here is a list of opportunities to pursue to keep up your striding:
