We have a recovery long run this weekend after building up our milages these last few weeks. Enjoy these easy runs because I see hills in your future. 

This Week’s Training

We are in Week 10, so plan your runs based on the training schedules. As I mentioned above, we are in a recovery week.In regards to training, means that your overall weekly mileage will be less and we will not be doing any specialty runs or workouts. It is designed to give your body and mind a rest we have been pounding the pavement pretty hard recently. I will be sending out a separate email with the subject "rest and recovery" which reviews this very subject in detail. Some notable items for each group:


  • Run/Walkers (ALL) – Nothing new this week in interval times or mid-week runs. Intervals are still 2/3 and 2/8 this week. Long run will be DOWN to 90-100min
  • Intermediate HALF – All runs easy this week. Long run will be DOWN to 7-8mi.
  • Intermediate FULL – All runs easy this week. Long run will be DOWN to 8-9mi.
  • Advanced Runners­­­­ – Take a break too!  Keep runs Solid this week and avoid trying to push things too hard.  You veterans and speedsters need some rest too!  Long run will be DOWN to 11-12mi.

Upcoming Group Runs & Clinics

Below are the run maps* and the group run locations.  At the very bottom of this email are detailed instructions on the meeting locations.

As Always

We'll usually arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, whatever.  We also plan to stay afterwards for as long as it takes to do the same.  This means I'll be at Tuesday runs around 6:00 PM and the Saturday runs at 7:00 AM.

As always, please let us know if you have questions.

See ya out there!
