The gO! Running Group is a Roseville based recreational running group that aims to provide group running opportunities for runners of all abilities. Although our focus is primarily on 5K to marathons, we have members who have completed triathlons (including Ironman events) and ultras. We train on both roads and trails. We currently meet three times per week - Sunday mornings and Tuesday/Thursday evenings.

CIM Training Run

Please use the "Who's Racing Where" log to declare your intentions for the CIM training run November 16th. We need to know how many are running, who can shuttle, and where people are starting from. 

For reference, Fleet Feet Fair Oaks is 18 miles from finish,  Corner of Mazanita and Fair Oaks Blvd. is 12-13 miles from finish, and Lohman's Plaza is 6 miles from the finish. Some may want to run by starting at the end and running the route backwards. We usually park around 10th and L.  Find the course map at http://www.runcim.org/

Some are planning breakfast  right after run at location to be determined.

Hope to see you there!!!

Before You Race

     Much has been said and written about racing.  What about before the race?  You've done the training, you've laid out your clothes, you've eaten your pre-race meal, and  you've set your goals.
Now you're at the venue waiting for a good race to happen. Before the gun goes off you must get physically "race ready".   For a half marathon and up you can minimize your preparations but for a 5K or a 10K you must actively prepare for a more intense effort. 
     Carry water with you to sip on throughout the warm up.  First you must warm up your muscles with a 15 or 20 minute jog (remember how in training you didn't start to feel comfortable for the first mile or two?) This will also trigger muscle memory.  Jog comfortably but break a sweat.  Next take 5 minutes to stand/walk around and swing your arms (windmills) and legs (cross-overs).  This would be a good time to visit the porta-potty.  To take your muscles through a full range of motion, do some dynamic warm-ups: high-knees/quick feet, butt kickers, high knee skips, and or karaoke (alternating one leg front and back while moving sideways).  Finally be prepared to do 5-6 strides (gradually building up your speed over 30-40 yards).  Your goal is to heat up your muscles, increase your heart rate, and increase your oxygen demand to warn your body what you are going to expect from it during the race.  This whole warm-up will take 30-45 minutes. 
     Try to complete this warm-up sequence with 7-10 minutes to spare so that you can get to the starting line and focus more on the mental preparation.
