Spring 2023 - Week 14(Tue)


Tuesday @ 6:15PM - Florida Canyon Loop @ Morley Field

Saturday @ 7:15am - Silver Strand from Coronado





    Good morning Team, 

    I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed some of that sunshine on Saturday. 

    This week we are back up in Morley Field and our last Tuesday doing hills before we transition into recovery mode where the mileage comes down a little giving our body's the opportunity to recover. Enjoy this down week as next week we will be right back after it and will be the last big push of miles as we prepare for race day.

    Important Updates

    We have a few thing in the mix that I wanted to give you an update on so we are all on the same page.

    • Receiving Text Messages: It has come to my attention that some people might have had some issue receiving text messages recently. We are working with our  vender and hope to have this issue resolved soon. If you or someone you know is experiencing this you can take the following steps. If you send the work BlackFlag (no space) to 619-393-2553 you will be opted back into the system. Additional if you ever miss a post you can refer back to this link (Click) which is a full library of all of our posts for the season. This is a surefire way to make sure you never miss any information.
    • Aaron will be out of town: As you know I rarely miss our training runs but a few times a year I have a conflict. You deserve to know that I will not be at onsite for the following two training days Tue 5/2 and Sat 5/6. The club will run as planned without any interruptions however I believe we could use some additional support on Tuesday 5/2 and maybe on Saturday 5/6. If you are open to helping out that day lets talk at the next run and come up with a plan.  

    Shirts Arrive Thursday

    The long awaited 2023 Spring Season shirts should be here on Thursday and if all goes to plan we will have them ready for distribution on on Saturday. 


    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 (Half) – Long run will be UP to 60min
    • Run/Walkers (Full) – Long run will be UP to 120-130min
    • Intermediate HALF – Long run will be UP to 7 mi.
    • PR Chasers HALF – Long run will be UP to 9 mi.
    • Intermediate FULL –  Long run will be UP to 14 mi.
    • PR Chasers FULL­­­­ –  Long run will be UP to 18M 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.

      Starting at Tidelands Park in Coronado, run the popular pathway clockwise till you get to the Hotel Del then verge off the usual path to head out South down the Silver Strand.  Hit your half way point? Turnaround and come home. (Mapped up to 11mi one way, 22mi round trip)

      Detailed Meeting Locations

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

      Morley Field Sports Complex, Florida Canyons

      3300 Texas St, San Diego, CA 92104

      We'll at the East end of the parking lot at the end of Texas Street.  Technically at the corner of Jacaranda Pl and Texas, but it's all one big parking lot.  We'll be on the North East side in the grassy area along the edge of the parking lot. Parking Lot View: http://bit.ly/fhYRq5   

      There are restrooms, but about ¼ mile away at the Tennis area North of the lot we meet in. http://bit.ly/fqXF20

      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.
