CONGRATULATIONS!  It's week 10 and that magic "half way point" for everyone putting in the weekly mileage and keeping up the training!  As I have mentioned over and over, making it to the halfway point is highly most crucial in your training, as once you get there, the rest is "downhill" from here . . . well kind of ;)

We are also in a Recovery Week which I’ll have more info sent separately. This means you get to cut back a bit in intensity and overall mileage (but not necessarily frequency)

Tuesday Nights = New Locations

Now that we have daylight, we mix things up on Tuesday nights.  Per the schedule, this week we’re at the County Admin Building on Tuesday.  Next week we start hill training at Morley Field :)

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.

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!
