 Goodmorning everyone, please read over this entire post as we have made some changes for this weeks regularly schduiled runs. 

NO Track workout / Heat Advisory 

 

Based on the weather reports, San Diego will be experiencing a Heat Wave for the better part of the week with temperatures in the Mid to High 90's. Your health and safety is our number one priority so we have made the executive decision to cancel our track workout for Tuesday and replace it with a more moderate run closer to the water with hopefully cooler temperatures. When there is a heat advisory in place it is recommended that you put a high focus on hydration and modifying your physical activity accordingly. Give the track workouts are high intensity and more inland where temperatures will likely be a little higher we decided to take the safer bet and switch up the run.  Thank you for your understanding. 

NEW Location for Tuesday

In an effort to keep our runs interesting we will be meeting at a new location on Tuesday. We will meet at Ski Beach which is literally right across the bay from the Crown Point meeting spot.  We will be meeting on the NE end of Ski Beach Park. You will see the park to the east off of Ingraham St. You will head into the park on Vacation Rd and turn left. We will meet in the grassy area near the restrooms at the northeast end. 1600 Vacation Rd San Diego CA 92109

Week 8 – Recovery week

This week we are in recovery mode. The weeks level of intensity is down and our mileage is down on our Saturday run. Don’t worry, we are back up in mileage next week so take advantage of this week and use it to recover.  

This Week’s Training - Week 8

As noted above, we are in recovery week. Which means we will take it a little slower and easer on our long runs.  This is important because following next 2 weeks are the final build-up to the LONG run, with some great long hill tempo runs in between.  These next 2-3 weeks can provide you with some very effective training.  We’ll end the last week before the race with a Taper (which is also important).  Make your long hill runs count, keep those LONG runs nice and steady and solid, and start to mentally think about your race.

  • Interval Run/Walkers – Intervals go up to 2/8 or 2/13.  
  • Intermediate Runners –Thursdays are now 7 milers ;)  We’re going up to 8-10 on Saturday.  
  • Advanced Runners - You love bumping up!  Lots of specialty workouts for you, including Hill Repeats and LT Intervals on Thursdays.  You’re up to a cool 11mi on Saturday.  See the schedule for details.
