Week 3 – Saturday Morning Long Run

NOTE: This week’s Sunday Run will be run on Saturday. This will allow you to get in a long run and then attend the MRC Summer Party and enjoy a long fun evening without worrying about getting up early on Sunday morning.

WEEKLY ADVICE: This week’s advice is “Eat and Run”. In most social settings this isn’t encouraged but for the SLR it is. Consider the fact that without breakfast you’ll be heading out for the most strenuous part of your week after about 12 hours without eating. Compare that to a regular day, if you had breakfast at 7AM and didn’t eat throughout the day, at 7PM in a hungry state would you even consider running for over 2 hours before you had dinner. That sounds pretty crazy doesn’t it! So remember to eat a good breakfast at least an hour before the start of the run each week. You’ll need to do this the day of your race anyway so its best to figure out what and when to eat through trial and error now.

THE ROUTE: In the spirit of recovering from last week’s run, this week’s run is short and sweet, 6.2 for the half route, 10.7 for the long route. If the memories of last week’s hills are still haunting you, this week is the flatest route we have, up to Lake Quannapowitt and back with a loop of the lake for the long run, no loop for the shorter.

ROLL CALL: Who’s in for the Saturday edition of the Sunday Long Run?
