    Let me start off by saying everyone is doing a great job, really jumping into the mileage and putting in the work. We have made mentioned this a few time already but given we only have 10 weeks to get ready for the race it’s important that we stick to the schedule and try to stay on top of our mileage. We have one more week of buildup in mileage before we have a modified recovery week. This week we will introduce a fairly good size hill into our Tuesday run. Florida canyon will be challenging for many of the new runners but the fastest way to get prepared for the race.  

    I also want to remind to everyone that on these runs don’t worry so much about how fast you are going we are building up our the time on our feet. Slow and steady should be the approach until we are able to successfully run 10-12 miles consistently at a steady pace. In the next few weeks we will give you the opportunity to really speed up your runs but for the next two week keep in mind we are trying to develop the base line of our running.

    You have done great these last two weeks and deserves a virtual high five for your effort. Registering is closing which will set the team for the rest of the season and the people you will be running with from here on out.  

    This Week’s Training

    We are in Week 3 or Week 14 the training.  That means we’re still UP this week in both intensity and overall weekly mileage.  Next week will be our recovery week, you should be ready to get back out there with our longest training runs of the season coming this weekend.  Some notable items for each group:
