Week 2 – Saturday Long Run

For those that look here, remember that this week’s Sunday Long Run is on Saturday. For those of you that don’t look here (well, you’re not looking) have a friend who does look here tell you that this week’s Sunday Long Run is on Saturday. Did I mention this week’s run is on Saturday?

Last week we started off the training season with a bang! Over 40 people showed up for either 4+ or 8+ miles of fun. That’s awesome. Nothing beats long runs with company. So let’s keep it up! Last Sunday I started to consider the alternate route for this week, but given the rain and one day of warm weather I think Breakheart is passable so let’s plan on that unless anyone has any evidence to suggest otherwise. We’ll meet at 8AM at Brueggers on Saturday, and remember that Saturday morning is a busier business day for them so lets try to stay out of the main walkway by the cash register. The run will head out to the LynnFells Parkway just like last week but where you turned at the lights, don’t turn this week, keep going straight into Saugus. On the left you’ll come to the Saugus entrance of Breakheart Reservation. Once there run up to the parking lot and look for the water stop car (mine again). Note though this week I may run a loop of Breakheart so I may not be there so pop the trunk and grab a drink.

After the water stop short runners will turn around and head back the way they came. Long runners will run a counterclockwise loop around the park. For those new to Breakheart when you get to the beach you’ll want to continue to run to the right to circle the outer loop, going left will cut out a mile. Also if this is your first time through Breakheart be prepared for some hills, real hills, heartbreak hill training hills. After the hills you’ll pop out back at my car for a second water stop. After that stop you’ll be on your way back to Brueggers just the way you came.

Waterstops, I’ll take care of them. In the future you’ll be asked to help out too.

So that’s about it. Any questions? No? Great. ROLL CALL! Who’s in?
