 The last big Saturday run of the 2019-2020 season is this weekend in Solana Beach at a new location. The route we will take is an out and back so no one will get lost but it should be really nice out along the coast. Remember to bring fluids with you. 

We are in a taper mode with most of us doing 8 miles this weekend an the big race being next weekend. See you up in Solana.

Next Season - What are we going to do? 

As you know everything is up in the air for the 2020-2021 race season which makes it difficult to plan and obviously train. While plans remain up in the air we will be moving to a FREE model where anyone that wants to come out is free come out. We will post on Social Media once a week where we will be meeting. Make sure you join the social media listed below to stay on top of whats going on. Once races are reset we will return to the more formal training approach hoping by October but we will see.

Virtual AFC - Race Day Sunday 8/16/20 

As a club, we will be hosting a virtual race on Sunday 8/16/20 @ 7:15am. I am still working on the course and how it's going to work but wanted to let you know in advance that this is happening. This means no group run on Saturday but we will follow regular race setup on that Sunday. We will likely have the start and finish line taking off from somewhere downtown.

Timed 10K  - Who won? 

I know everyone is wondering who won the free shoes That's a great question as I am still trying to figure out how to look up old data but what I can say is that it's narrowed down to 8 runners. Hope to have this figured out by Saturday, stay tuned.  

This Week’s Training - Week 10

Week 11 is the beginning of the Taper Phase. We will have one solid group run on Tuesday, then begin the taper process for the next 1.5 weeks.  We’ll discuss the taper tonight, and more on Saturday.

  • Interval Run/Walkers – Final bump to 1/9 and 1/14 Interval.  Mid-week runs stay same, Saturday long run down to 100min.
  • Intermediate Runners – No changes mid-week.  Saturday is down to E8.
  • PR Chasers - No changes mid-week.  Saturday is down to E11.

Saturday @ 7:15 am - Fletcher Cove - Solana Beach / New Location

As Always

We will arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, etc.. We also plan to stay afterward for as long as it takes to do the same. This means I'll be at Tuesday runs at 6:00 PM and the Saturday runs at 7:00 AM.

Please let us know if you have questions.

See you all this week!
