Spring 2023 - Week 15 (Tue)


Tuesday @ 6:15pm - County Admin Building / Water Front Park





Good Morning!  We have an exciting week planned for us. We will kick it off with a run along the water downtown and another long run Saturday morning, the longest run yet for some of us. Looking forward to seeing your faces.   

Side note, as we creep up in mileage it is really important that we start being mindful of fluid, fuel and rest on the day before and following our runs. If you don't keep a log just make a mental note. If you are feeling like you had a crappy run my guess is that it has little to do with our training and more about the resource you are giving your body when asking it to perform. Test different combination of things now so you have a firm grasp on what works when it comes to race day. 

Looking for a community room

As you may remember from years past we host a small get together to load up on carbs and give out some awards the Friday before Rock n Roll, June 2nd. We are looking to see if someone has a community room to host this event. If anyone has any contact for something like this please let me know ASAP. Thank you. 

The last big push

After a nice ‘down’ week for most of us and nearly perfect weather long run on Saturday, we’re off to a big week of training as we’re going BACK UP in mileage and intensity.  We are gearing up for the last big push towards our LONGEST run of the training.  You’ll see below that all of our runs are now longer, and our mid-week runs are bumping up some too.

Medium Long Runs MLR are now Upon Us

In addition to adding a bit of mileage to our Mon and Wed runs for most everyone, our Thursday runs bump up more mileage to cover what we call “Medium Long Run” (MLR) distance.  

This Week’s Training

As mentioned above, we’re back UP this week.  Everyone’s weekly mileage is bumping up a bit starting this week.  This includes the R/W Interval Group bumping up to the next set of intervals at 2/8 or 2/13.  Notables for each group are:

  • R/W (ALL)  – Up to 2/8 or 2/13 Interval.  Thurs is up to 80/90min MLR.  Saturday is up to 110/160.
  • Intermediate Half – Add 1 mi to weekly runs. Thursdays are now 7mi MLR. Saturday is UP to 11-12mi
  • Intermediate Full – Add 1 mi to weekly runs. Thursdays are now 8mi MLR. Saturday is UP to 15-16mi.
  • PR Chasers Full – Tuesday Runs are now MLP (Marathon Pace Run).  Wayne will review. Thursdays will now be 11+ miles.  Saturday is an Easy 14-15mi.

 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.


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.
