There is a 6-mile route and a 3-mile route again this weekend. We will meet in front of the YMCA (no meeting this week). Be sure to do some stretching while waiting for everyone. Both groups will go the same direction again, but the 3-mile group will turnaround at the "frog statue" near the playground. The 6-mile group will run a full loop around Sunset Park and then return to the Y after going back through Battle Park. The map gives you a general idea of the route, and the distance should be accurate for this route.
- Want to run 4 miles? If you want to make the 3-mile route a four instead, stay on the paved trail towards Chicos. When you are beside the skate park, you will see a yellow 2 painted on the trail. Turn around and return to the YMCA
- Want to run 4.8 miles? If you want to push up to a 4.8 mile route, do the loop around Sunset and return directly to the YMCA
The reason I am giving you options for different distances is some of you are still trying to figure out which plan is right for you. In some cases, 3 miles is not a big enough challenge for you, and in other cases 6 miles is a bit too long right now. At this point, you should be able to comfortably finish your long runs. Remember, your running is not about speed right now.
Written directions are available in the right navigation, and the map is listed under "Sunset + Battle Park."
