    Good Morning and CONGRATULATIONS! There is a lot of high fives that need to go around. We had a small group take on the Encinitas Half this weekend while the rest of us did Torrey Pines Hill. Fun Times for everyone. 

    This week we are back at it again with Florida Canyon and more hill repeats. 

    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!

    Interval Groups = Split-Off Half vs. Full

    Starting in Week 11 (Phase 3) the Beginner / Interval half vs full marathoners finally split off from each other in overall weekly minutes, primarily in the Saturday long runs. The half marathoners will continue a very gradual increase and level-off, while the full marathoners will continue on a more rapid increase. For instance, in 2 weeks, the half marathoners will do 110min while the full marathoners will do 130min. Similarly, mid-week runs differ by 10min each. NOTE: The intervals remain the same for both A and B groups.


    This Week’s Training

    We are in Week 9 and beginning Phase 3 of the training.  That means we’re back UP this week in both intensity and overall weekly mileage.  After a 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:


    • Run/Walkers (ALL) – Nothing new this week in interval times or mid-week runs. Intervals are still 1/4 and 1/9 this week.
    • Run/Walkers (Half) – No change from last week in Days/Times. Long run will be UP to 110-130min
    • Run/Walkers (Full) – No change from last week in Days/Times. Long run will be UP to 120-130min
    • Intermediate HALF – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be UP to 11 mi.
    • Intermediate FULL – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be UP to 14 mi.
    • Advanced Runners­­­­ – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be UP to a 18mi EZ run.

    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 afterward 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 by 7 AM.

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