Ho Ho Ho!

Happy Holidays everyone!!! This is our last run before the holidays we are giving you something special, a recovery run.  We are down in mileage this weekend which will give us a little time to recover before we start building back up again. If you are doing the SD Half Marathon this will be your first shot at the Washington street hill. 

    NO RUN Tuesday "Holiday Schedule"- Moving our run to Thursday 12/27

    As I mentioned last week, given Christmas falls on a Tuesday we wanted your input on moving the run that week. The results from the poll are in and we will be moving the run to Thursday 12/27/2018 at 6:15pm.

    This Week’s Training

    This is week 8 and is a RECOVERY WEEK and perfect timing with the Holidays approaching and many office parties and eggnog to consume. :)  What’s it mean again?  The recovery week is a relaxed week of training in overall intensity for the long run, as you can see from the schedule.  It gives you a chance to rest a bit and reduce stresses on your body and mind. It will provide a good base to “get back on it” next week.  You should still get “out and about” the same, but cut back on intensity and overall mileage.

    Specific training notes are:

    • Run/Walkers – No Change this week.  Saturday’s LR is DOWN to 80 min.
    • Intermediate Runners – All runs EZ in nature, REGARDLESS how good you feel.  Saturday’s LR is DOWN to 8.5 mi, easy.
    • PR Chasers  – All runs EZ in nature, REGARDLESS how good you feel.  Saturday’s LR is DOWN to 8.5 mi, easy.

    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 @ 7:15 am - Liberty Station

        Starting at the old Naval Training Center (NTC) in the NE corner of the park (parking lot right at Cushing Rd), head out SW out of the park, over the Halsey Rd Bridge.  Cut back and underneath the Harbor Drive Bridge to enter Spanish Landing Park.  Continue out to Harbor Island, heading West to end to cul-de-sac for 3.3mi one-way.  Option is to skip Harbor Island and continue around SD harbor on Harbor Drive to your turnaround.

        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 afterwards for as long as it takes to do the same.  This means I'll be at Tuesday runs by 6 PM and the Saturday runs at 7 AM.

        Please let us know if you have questions.

        See you all tomorrow!
