Brooklyn Weekend Run

We are now doing our Brooklyn runs on Saturdays.  We'll try to mix up the routes as much as possible so we don't get too bored doing lops of Prospect Park.  This will mainly serve as an opportunity for a long run.  If you have any ideas for courses, please let us know!

      Hey Sam, I'm doing a 13 mile progression from grand army. Will probably do 7:20 pace for 8 and the progression the last 5 or so (averaging probably just under 7). Does that work for you at all?

    Either running this on Friday or earlier Saturday morning. If it's not too hot out, progression to 7:15-7:30 pace.

    If we run a lap inside the park, then around the park twice (~14.6) and then one final lap inside the park that comes out to almost 18. Just a thought.

    Weekend runs are always defined by the run leaders and the distance may vary according to their plans. That said, here are some recommended workouts for the weekend of August 31-September 1...

    FALL MARATHONERS: 17-18M progression run

    NON-MARATHONERS WITH A SOLID BASE: 10-13M progression run

    MILE SPECIALISTS WITH A SOLD BASE: 3M at easy pace, then 2M at
    5K-10K pace, then rest/jog for 3 minutes. Then 4 x 200m at faster than 1-mile pace with 200m recovery. Finish with 2M at easy pace.

    IF BUILDING A BASE: 8-10M at easy or long run pace

    Long run pace is slightly faster than easy, but is still 45-60 seconds/mile slower than marathon goal pace (or your estimated goal pace if you were training for a marathon). Progression run pace starts at long run pace for the first half -- but the second half gradually accelerates to goal marathon pace (for marathoners) or current half marathon pace (for everyone else) -- making sure that the last 10 minutes are at an easy pace.
