Training Runs: Mar. 3rd, 5th, & 7th

Here are this week’s runs: Folks, this will be our last week of our weekly winter training regimen with the time change looming in a week. We will be transitioning to dirt next week. Enjoy the Pasture/night view from the top of Windy Hill and Thursday Night Hills for the last time for several months this week. 

Tuesday, March 3: Meet at Huffaker School, 5:45 p.m., run Bartley Ranch/the Pasture/Country Estates Loop/Pasture/Windy Hill for 5ish miles or extend the run from Windy Hill up Evans, down Ridgeview to Plumas to Manzanita and back to Huffaker via Lakeside for 9-ish miles; 

Thursday, March 5: Meet at Eclipse Running at 5:45 p.m. for Thursday Night Hills, either the 7.5-mile loop or the 10-ish mile loop;

Saturday, March 7: Meet at Pinehaven, 7 a.m., and run Gaspari Loop up to the Gate, then back down from the Gate to the Meat Grinder to Thompson Trailhead, to the High Road to the top Hole in the Wall, back on the Ditch all the way to Woodchuck (all the way to the Woodchuck Street; don’t cut early), up Woodchuck to Thompson, back on the Meat Grinder and run the Gaspari Loop backwards back to Pinehaven for 25 miles. For those who are semi-tapering or wishing a shorter run, don’t come back on the entire Gaspari Loop to make the run 21.5 miles; or, cut up to the Thompson Trailhead early on the Ditch about a half-mile after Mike’s Point, for about 18 miles (or do an out and back whenever you wish for a couple of hours).
