We are heading into Week 8 of training, and it’s going to be a fun week. We are ramping up our mileage for everyone and if you are doing the SD Half Marathon your just about race ready, we have the Leprechaun Run on Saturday and a Social event in the evening. Its going to be a big week for everyone.
See you tomorrow. .
PB LEPRECHAUN RUN - SAT 3/11/23
We are going to be switching things up as little on our run scheduled for Saturday, March 11. If you where part of the run club for the winter season you will remember we participated in the PB Santa Run and it was a big hit. Give the feedback was so positive we are going to do a similar evet on 3/11/23 with the PB Leprechaun Run. The general plan is we will meet as a club before the run and get in some warm up miles and then migrate to the start line to complete the Fun Run 5K. This way we can still get in all the mileage on the schedule.
This is a paid event and will require you to register independent f the club but we have secured a discount code listed below. If you don't want to do the run as a group with us I will still have a map available for you to get in your full miles.
The best part is we will do a social event after the run and enjoy a few green beers together. It should be a lot of fun and hope to see you out there.

Our Next Social Event: Dave & Busters San Diego
Saturday 3/11/23 @ 7:15pm
This is an open event so friends and family are invited to participate in the fun. See you then.
Watch the Weather & Recovery Aide
Especially for the newer runners... bring some warm clothes with you to the Tuesday night runs (It gets a bit chilly as it nears sundown.) You can leave them behind when you go out. Also, bring some RECOVERY DRINK and AIDE for after the group runs. The first 30 minutes post-run are most important for re-hydration, and you should plan to eat your first 'healthy' meal within 2 hours. (We’ll be talking more about aide, nutrition, and recovery as we progress.) This isn’t as crucial on our mid-week runs as it is on our longer, Saturday runs of >90min.
This Week’s Training
Run/Walkers – Both Interval groups bump UP another minute on each interval (while removing a minute of walking). The A group is now running MORE than walking as you’ve crossed over the 50% mark – CONGRATS!! Intervals are 2/3 and 2/8 now. Full marathoner’s mid week runs are slightly longer by 10min each.
Intermediate HALF – Continue Base building! No change from last week. All mid-week runs in the 5mi range. All runs are stillEASY (Novice) to Steady State (Intermediate)
Intermediate FULL – No Change overall. All runs are still EASY (Novice)to Steady State (Intermediate)
PR Chasers FULL - Tuesday will introduce 800m Repeat Intervals. Fun Stuff!!
SD Half Marathon Group - This is it!!! As noted above, this is your Taper week meaning all of your runs are a tad bit shorter, definitely easier but don’t miss out on any of the days (keep frequency the same). I’ll have a dedicated “Taper” email for you separately.
