Need To Know: Week 10 (Ventura 17)


 Tuesday @ 6:00p - Florida Canyon Loops @ Morley Field

Saturday @ 7:30a - Torrey Pines “Pleasure Seeker” @ Rehab United (CV)




We are over 1/2 way through and moving into Week 10 - congratulations some more to all of you!  We had a great week as we introduced our first HILL WORKOUT last week.  It was awesome BTW!!!  And Saturday’s LONG run was set in near perfect running conditions (again!) as we ran the coast of La Jolla down into PB which was also a bit “rolling” including the 2nd hill of the LJ Half Marathon.


We have another exciting week with more hill workouts, and a very rewarding long run - in both accomplishment, and by finishing up the run true California style by enjoying breakfast burritos at the taco shop that shares the parking lot. More to come . . .

The interval group is increasing in Two ways this week. Your Monday and Thursday runs are UP to 60/70 and 70/80 min respectively and your Interval time is up to 1/4 and 1/9.  Refer to below and your schedule for details.

Hill Running

Since we’re in it full swing, I’ve got a great article/reference email being tidied up and sent to you in just a bit. It discusses everything “hills”. We have another good week of Hill Training, including our “Torrey Pines Pleasure Seeker” this weekend. Bring on La Jolla!

Detailed Meeting Locations

This is where we will meet on Tuesday and/or Saturday. Don’t get lost :)


Morley Field Sports Complex, Florida Canyons

3300 Texas St, San Diego, CA 92104

We'll at the East end of the parking lot at the end of Texas Street.  Technically at the corner of Jacaranda Pl and Texas, but it's all one big parking lot.  We'll be on the North East side in the grassy area along the edge of the parking lot. Parking Lot View:   

There are restrooms, but about ¼ mile away at the Tennis area North of the lot we meet in.


Rehab United, Carmel Valley

3323 Carmel Mountain Rd. Ste 200, San Diego, CA 92121

Park in the lower 1.5 of 4 lots (those will fill up fast).  Do NOT park in the upper lot as those belong to the building above.  Also do NOT park in the lower level lots as those belong to the restaurants below.  Do NOT park in the building across the street’s parking lot (out front/side is okay)  What’s left? Park out on the streets and along Carmel Mountain Road and Sorrento Valley Road. There’s plenty of it, just may have to walk a few hundred yards.
