Half Marathoners:

(map of the 5k course: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/348037449)
 
Full Marathoners:
  • 20 miles, all easy, just run. We won’t meet back up with the half marathoners.
Here’s a map of the route:  http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/384486200
 
There will be some water/gatorade on the course, but bring your own water/gatorade and nutrition for in-between. 
 
*Also after the run, Results Physiotherapy will be there to check out any lingering issues you may have with running injuries.
 
Don’t forget about:

Week 11 Full/Half Marathon Training – Everyone meets at 8am!

March 14, 2014

Week 11 Full/Half Marathon Training – Everyone meets at 8am!

When: 
8:00am Saturday/Sunday

Where: 
Base of Pedestrian Bridge – East Side

Parking is available in Lot R of LP Field

The Workout: 
Full & Half Advanced: 14 miles
Full & Half Standard: 11 miles

Routes:

1. For 11 miles that includes the bridge, picks up the route, and brings you back (thanks, Brian Johnson!): http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/370714699

2. If you’re running 14, you may want to run down 11th ave S and continue to Charlotte, then return to LP.

This is another week of just adding up some miles. Some raced this weekend and you’ve all been putting in several long runs. Only 5 weeks remaining after this week!

In addition to Running:

You might also consider adding yoga into your routine. When you only move you body in one direction on one plane over and over again, there is a risk of injury. Some overuse injuries even force us to stop running for a few days. Yoga is a great way to move and strengthen muscles you need to use to stay injury-free! Check out Kali Yuga Yoga’s “Yoga for Runners” class and take a step towards staying healthy while running: http://www.kaliyugayoga.com/YogaForRunners.html

See you this weekend! ENFL!!

Marathon and Half Marathon Training – Week 4 And Brunch again!

January 24, 2014
 

The Plan:

 – Full Marathonders warm up, run 10k time trial
 – Half Marathoners warm up, run 5k time trial
 
Make sure you have a watch so you can record your time-trial this week!
 

When?

Saturday and/or Sunday
 –  Full Marathoners meet at 7:30am
 –  Half Marathoners meet at 8am
 

Where?

Shelby Bottoms Nature Center
 

What else?

Brunch is happening again!

 – Come to Bree and Eric’s place (708 Porter Road, Nashville, TN 37206) directly after the run on Sunday (9:30am-ish).
 – Sign up here to bring something. Just add your name in the document.
 – Also, make sure to NOT park in the bike lanes on Porter. I’d suggest the street either on Scott Ave or Franklin Ave
 

Injury Screeings

AND we’ll have someone from Results Physiotherapy doing injury screenings inside while brunch is going on! So come run, eat, and get that nagging issue checked out before it turns into something more.

 

See you Saturday or Sunday! After we run, you’ll find me at the brunch. ENFL!
