Happy Friday Everyone,
Everyone was looking really strong on Tuesday's hill workout. I know these are challenging runs and not always the most fun but they do yield results. Making a commitment to the uncomfortable will result in faster times.
This weekend we will be running more hills as we will be meeting at the fountain in Balboa Park. Please review the maps in advance and you might want to bring your phone with you on this one as it can get confusing. As a reminder, there are no aid stations on this run so knowing where you are going is important and you should bring some kind of hydration with you as temperature have been high this week.
See ya'll in the morning.
This Week’s Training
EVERYONE should be fully up to speed now. BUT REMEMBER, when I say up to speed, I don’t mean ‘fast’ . . . even though we’re going to the track tomorrow. it means that you should be at a solid training level, rested up, recovered from your last race, and ready to take it to another level. The only exception is for you crazies who ran the Mammoth Half yesterday (or any other race) or for the few newer runners who have just started. If you are a newer runner, still have to keep things very easy in nature - give it a few more weeks and you’ll be at a better level.
Week 7 we are back after it . . . Everyone’s training schedule has a slight increase in the weekly mileage (in addition to the usual long run increase)
- Interval Run/Walkers – Moving UP to a 4/1 or 1/9 Interval. In addition, Times increase 10min.
- Intermediate Runners – Bump up in mid-week run mileage, +1mi each run. Also, you should plan to Cross-train on Wednesdays. It used to be optional, now highly recommended :)
- PR Chasers Runners - Nothing too new. Did you find that Hill to do repeats on for Today’s run? Tomorrow, we’ll add another mile to your LT Intervals.

Saturday @ 7:15 AM - Balboa Parks Fountain
I hope everyone is excited because this Saturday's run will be a newer run that most of you have never done before and those that have done it have really enjoyed it. I am super excited about it because it includes 4 bridges and the option to visit a forgotten cemetery. I have a feeling it is going going to be a favorite but know in advance it's going to be challenging ......... in a good way.
Meet: Bea Evenson Fountain 1875 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101
We'll 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 around 5:45 PM and Saturday runs at 6:45 AM.
See ya out there!
