We'll running some hill repeats!!! Informal breakfast afterwards at the community center, and guest speaker!


Hill Repeat Route: http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=590194 (http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=590194)

First we'll start by doing an easy 1/3 mile walk/run on the Bay Walk from the Recreation/Community Center over to the bottom of the hill: http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=590195 (http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=590195)

We'll then run up the hill at what is a comfortable pace all the way to the entrance of the Eisenhower House (NOT ALL OUT - ITS NOT A RACE!). If you need to take a walk/hike break while running up, please do so, but try to make it all the way up to the top without walking (HINT - PACE YOURSELF!). You will then take a walk break (or easy recovery jog) across the top (while admiring the GORGEOUS views of the bay and bridge) and then run downhill to the bottom of the hill and walk or easy jog back to the start where you will run up the hill again!

Each hill repeat loop is approx. 0.6 miles. Everyone should aim to get 5-8 hill repeats in (3-5 miles). Remember, its not a race - just go at your own pace!

Afterwards (1 hr max of hill repeats), we'll do an easy walk/run back to the community center where we'll have an informal breakfast (i'll bring coffee and bagels from DD; feel free to bring anything else if you want to, but definitely not required!!).

Our guest speaker is Nick Aunkst from Bristol Chiropractic (www.bristolchiro.com; he plans to run with us too!) He'll be giving us an approximate 45-60 min hands on presentation on strength/cross training as well as mobility and injury prevention for runners. He'll also bring his portable chiro table and offer some ART (Active Release Technique) for anyone that wants to stick around after the talk!!

How to find us:Park on Jefferson Road next to the "church" and meet us inside!
