    ____________________________________________

     We are in recovery mode this week which means all the runs drop the their level of intensity and we are doing easy milage. Remeber recovery periods are just as important as the long runs. Follow your training plan and you will be on a plan for success. 

    WE NEED YOUR HELP: Locations for upcoming events

    Every year we host two events (Movie Night & End of Season Award Ceremony) and we are in search of a location. If your apartment building has a community room we can use or you know someone that owns a Bar/Resturant that might be willing to host our group please let me know. I can fill you in on all the details. Please email me at coach@BlackFlagRunningClub.com

    This Week’s Training

    We are in Week 9, so plan your runs based on the training schedules.Overall, solid, steady state runs are on schedule and this is the last BIG push of this training cycle before a recovery week. Some notable items for each group:

    • Intermediate HALF – No change from last week – all runs still to be solid and steady but generally EASY.  Long run will be up to 8-10mi. All mid-week runs in the 5mi range. All runs are still EASY (Novice) to Steady State (Intermediate)
    • Intermediate FULL – No Change overall.  All runs are still EASY (Novice) to Steady State (Intermediate).  Mid-weekruns in the 5-6mi range and Long Run is up to 11-12mi.
    • PR Chasers FULL - Tuesday will be a longer Tempo Run (E2 + LT5), Thursday includes 10k RP intervals and Long Run builds to 15mi Easy.

    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.

    Tuesday @ 6:15 am - De Anza Cove, Mission Bay

    Starting at almost the end of the Mission Bay Boardwalk at De Anza Cove, run South on the busy and popular concrete pathway on an Out & Back Run.

    Saturday @ 7:15am - To La Jolla Cove (from Crown Point)

    From Crown Point, head North around Sail Bay to the ocean and head North into La Jolla along the beautiful “bike path” and neighborhood of La Jolla.  It’s an Out & Back, so turn around where your schedules tells you, but you can easily get all the way to the Cove for a 15mi run, or the Shores, and further if you wish.

    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.

    See you tomorrow!

    *NOTE  – between 11/1 and 3/31 the restroom at this parking lot is closed for the winter –They should be open by now. There is a restroom at the other end of the Park just under a 1/4 mile away (you can easily walk/jog from our lot) and there is also a restroom at Fanuel Park which is about 1 mile into the run.  Keep this in mind if you find yourself having to go to the restroom as you near the parking area before the run.
