Hey everyone!

Well, this is the last normal week of training before we head into holiday mode.  It’s a recovery week as well, so take advantage of the lower mileage. This doesn't mean stop running, it simply means "Rest and Recovery.” 


As you might have heard me say at the bar Saturday night we had a minimum we need to meet to get the trailer and unfortunately they wanted it all on one tab.  I went ahead and put it all on my card and figure I would settle up with everyone later. If you drank anything that you didn't pay for on Saturday please venmo me. It's the honor system.  My venom account is: @Aaron-Adragna

Weekend Fun Recap!

This weekend was jam packed with fun and it looks like everyone took full advantage of it. 

  • Santa Run - While there was a good size group in Carlsbad on Saturday we had a huge group do the Santa Run in PB. It looks like you guys had so much fun. 
  • Ugly Sweater Party - You came, you saw and you got your groove on. We had a huge group of people come out to the party and everyone brought their A-Game. It’s always fun seeing everyone wearing something different than a technical tee. 

Holiday Schedule- Moving our run to Monday, 12/23

As I mentioned last week, given Christmas Eve falls on a Tuesday we will be moving our Tuesday run to MONDAY, 12/23/19 at 6:15pm at S. Mission Boardwalk.

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 does 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.

 Tuesday @ 6:15pm - County Admin Building / Waterfront Park

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!
