Manhattan Weekend Run

Route: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/278439619

We'll head into Central Park to do a loop of the Bridle Path before exiting the park on 72nd Street and heading West to the Hudson River.

When we get to Hudson River Park, we'll head North and follow the river all the way up to the George Washington Bridge. The turnaround point is just South of the Bridge.

We'll then retrace our steps to head South back along the river. The 16 mile mark is the 72nd St exit from Hudson River Park.

We'll go back into the park at 72nd St, head South along the Bridle Path and finish back at Time Warner Center.

For anyone doing fewer than 18 miles, you can turn around earlier at any point you wish.

Reminder: Please post your pace and expected distance when RSVPing.

      Sounds like everybody felt like crap today. I did too. Might need to reevaluate my marathon goals.

      Actually 8am is fine for me. Thought I had to finish earlier. So if we just meet with the rest of the group at Time Warner it's fine.

    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.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
