Hey everyone!

We are fresh off a recovery week, so there will be a new increase to mileage. The good news is everyone should have plenty of calories to help fuel us through the increase in output ( Thanks Turkey day!)  

    Race Discount Codes 

    We have reached out to the race directors for some of the upcoming races we have some following discount codes setup for you:

    • Fathers Joe's Thanksgiving 5K (unknown if they will have a code for us)
    • Santa Run ( BFRC10 for a 10% discount )
    • San Diego Holiday Half ("blackflagclub for 15% off)

    This Week’s Training

    This is week 9! This week we are up in mileage and in the final build-up before race day!  Remember we are doing some the longest runs of the Winter season and are the most important in having a successful race. Don't skip the long runs, and if you can't make the Saturday run try to shift the mileage to another day in the same week. We are in the home stretch

    Specific training notes are:

    • Run/Walkers – Int A: 1/4.   Int B: 2/8. Saturdays are up to 120 minutes in duration. 
    • Intermediate Runners – 2 easy miles followed by 3 Lactate Threshold intervals ( 1 minute recoveries) on Tuesday. Saturday's run is up to 11 miles. 
    • PR Chasers  – Easy 6 followed by 8 hill repeats on on Tuesday. Easy 15 on Saturday.

     Tuesday @ 6:15 pm - South Mission Boardwalk

    SATURDAY @ 7:15 am - Balboa Parks Fountain 

    As Always

    We will arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, etc..  We also plan to stay afterwards for as long as it takes to do the same.  This means I'll be at Tuesday runs by 6 PM and the Saturday runs at 7 AM.

    Please let us know if you have questions.

    See you all tomorrow!

    Coach Aaron  (619) 405-1828
