 Hi Team, 

Awesome job last week as we finished our last hill workout before La Jolla and for many of us the longest run of the season. The good news is this week we are in a recovery/tapper mode where we will take out milage down a little and give our bodies the opportunity to rest up a little. 

We have a new run set for this Tuesday at Trolley Barn Park and we will confirm the run location for Saturday once we have confirmed the path is open. More on that in Friday's post.

Yes, for all of you!!!! And after 3 weeks straight of hill training, plus a few rough long runs . . . IT’S TIME FOR SOME RECOVERY!!  


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.  Some notable items for each group:

  • Run/Walkers (ALL) – No change this week.  LONG run will be DOWN to 100/120.
  • Intermediate RnR HALF – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be DOWN to 9-10 mi.
  • Intermediate LJ Half – Race week / Taper week.
  • Intermediate FULL – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be DOWN to 11-12 mi.
  • Advanced Runners­­­­ – No changes to mid-week runs. Long run will be DOWN to 15-16 mi.

    Upcoming Group Runs & Clinics

    Below are the run maps and the group run locations.  At the very bottom of this post are detailed instructions for the meeting locations.

    Detailed Meeting Locations

    This is where we will meet on Tuesday and/or Saturday. Don’t get lost :)


    Trolley Barn Park Details:

    We will be starting our run at Trolley Barn Park in University Heights located at 1943 Adams Ave, San Diego, CA 92116, There is no parking lot and you can park on the street around the park.  

    Coronado, Tidelands Park

    2099 Mullinex Dr, Coronado, CA 92118

    Coming from San Diego over Coronado Bridge, stay in far right lane, exit Glorietta Blvd, right onto Mullinex into park, all the way to end.  We're in the far East end of the park, along the water's edge, towards the bridge.  There are restrooms and water fountains.


    *This is a great run, but a busy area and limited parking.  Tidelands park can be a madhouse on Saturday mornings as there are ball fields out there and the Saturday morning soccer moms can be out in force.  If you’re not “early”, plan to park out on Mullinex Rd, or possibly even further – meaning you could be faced with a good hike, so try to get there earlier than normal.
