Route: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2908765462 Weekend runs are typically reserved for long runs often ranging from 12 to 20 miles, depending on the training plan. Every week features a different route, which will be posted a day or two prior. Runners are welcome to start earlier and/or cut out for their own needs. The route is provided to plan your exit or continuation strategies. PACING BUCKETS When RSVPing, we ask all of you to think about where you fall in the following buckets for your long run paces: 6C – 6:45 to 7:00 7A – 7:05 to 7:20 7B – 7:25 to 7:40 7C – 7:45 to 8:00 8A – 8:05 to 8:20 8B – 8:25 to 8:40 8C – 8:45 to 9:00 9A – 9:05 to 9:20 9B – 9:25 to 9:40 9C – 9:45 to 10:00 10A – 10:05 to 10:20 10B – 10:25 to 10:40 10C – 10:45 to 11:00 When splitting up for the pace groups, we’ll do it in big buckets of 6/7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 pace, and from that point on, we will ask you to identify each other in the sub-buckets of A, B or C. When you bucket yourself for a run, please try to stay within that range for a good portion of the run and help each other during the run. If you are doing a progression, please announce that you are splitting off so others who weren’t expecting faster paces don’t follow. Getting consistent pacing representation across a wide range is extremely difficult but it has to be a collective effort. Please RSVP to the meetups if you’re going to show up even if you are a regular. Please comment with expected distance and pace bucket!
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!
Runner’s World calls “The Olympic Marathon Trials, the country’s most exclusive marathon.” The Trials determine three women and three men who get to compete for the US in the Olympic. Let’s cheer on our teammates Jessica Chichester and Grace Bowen as they attempt to make the 2020 US Olympic team!
