TRAINING RUN SUNDAY 8/31/14 – 18 MILES

 

Training run this SUNDAY 8/31/14 on the second loop (14 miles). The distance for the training this weekend is 18 miles so you can add 4 miles out and back on the trail either before, in the middle or after the 14 mile loop (your choice).

We won’t have a ride available from Chester this week so if you want to do the 10 mile option (Goshen to the Chester Depot) you will have to work out your own ride.

Hope to see you there! All paces are welcome!

There will be no water in the first 9 miles, so please carry your own. If you plan to do the full first loop (12 miles), there will be water & sports drink at the end of the 9 miles.

For runners following the posted training program, I recommend that you take this “drop down” week and do NOT do the full first loop of the course. We are going to be in the mid-teens very soon for the long run, and your body could use the break (mentally & physically)!  :-)

Let me know who is coming for a ride so I make sure there is enough transportation back to Goshen.

All pace are welcome to join!
