1/2 Marathon Training
Now is not the time to skip a long run…but it’s Easter. So we have Saturday morning or Sunday morning training options this week. Either way, we are all doing slow mileage…time on your feet. This run should be completely conversational the entire way – if you can’t talk to the person next to you, you need to slow down. Your heart rate should average 70-75% of your max, and you should never exceed 80%, even on the hills.
The meeting places and routes are different, so please keep reading if you are planning on joining us this weekend...
Saturday, April 7.
8 a.m. at Centennial Park. Here is the facebook invitation. We are going to run the entire half marathon course. There will be four places to get water, and there will be transportation back to Centennial. Unless, of course, you are in the advanced group – your transportation back to Centennial will be your own legs. Steve Lundy Lund will be there to lead an advanced group, Mark Charlton and Jennifer Eberle will lead the novice/intermediate groups.
P.S. If the link to the facebook invitation does not work, just show up at 8 a.m. at Centennial Park.
Sunday, April 8
Meet at Bongo East at 8 a.m. We will be running a modified Bongo-to-Bongo loop. 12, 14 or 16 + miles. We’ll follow this route out past Bongo @ Belmont, and then follow the 1/2 marathon course back to Bongo East. Here is the route that we are following…(we will shorten it for the novice group.)
