1. Important news and announcements for this week.

A. Marymount Masters Swim is to be cancelled at the end of June. The schedule will remain as is until the end of this month. The demands by the University on their pool space has required them to stop our masters swim program on Tues/Thurs from 6:30-7:30 AM.   I know there are a few of you who have been consistent supporters over the years, and they send their thanks and wish us all the best. Maybe someday in the future we can get back there.   Please let me know if you need help picking a new pool/location – but before you do please check out your options here: L4 Swimming Pool Locations

Team Z Arlington – What’s up for the Week of May 19 to May 25


** Welcome New Zs!

*** Hash Run Tonight – PRR Arlington at 6:30 PM (YEAH!).  Never been to one?  We have our own version that is much tamed compared to the infamous hash runs in our area.   You should all come and give this unique run a whirl.  It is a fantastic way to keep a diverse set of running abilities together for a social run (more details below).

We have a recovery week in front of us!  Remember, it is a recovery week and not an off week.  Recovery workouts (easy, shorter distances) are instrumental in getting the blood moving – flushing out the junk and bringing new nutrients and minerals to help your muscles repair themselves from the previous weeks of hard work.

Get them in – even if your 40 minute run ends up being 30 – it is still worth every step!
